    TAKE 5: Meals that Start with Shredded Chicken

    TAKE 5: Meals that Start with Shredded Chicken


    The Food Network announced that the average American eats 78 pounds of chicken a year. Thatís a lot of chicken, and I think it justifies taking another look at it for our convenience food of the day. This is another time it will be one of the convenience foods you make yourself, because today we are considering shredded chicken. The easiest way to make shredded chicken is in the crockpot. Or you can bake it in the oven as the Barefoot Contessa does. Either way the chicken breasts cook up moist and tender. Use two forks (or your hands) to shred the cooked meat while it is still quite warm. It is easiest to do then. Irregular shreds of chicken are more attractive in these recipes than precise cubes. Now it is true that most of the recipes featuring shredded chicken are Tex-Mex so if you like that kind of food, youíre in clover. But if you donít, donít give up. There are plenty of non-Tex-Mex on site, too. I've tried to choose half and half.

    First the basic directions:

    The Best Shredded Chicken (Crock Pot) ~ makes Tex-Mex flavored meat in the crockpot
    My "famous" Shredded Chicken ~ nothing Tex-Mex about this one cooked on the stovetop
    Cooked Chicken for Recipes - Barefoot Contessa Style ~ breasts bake up moist in the oven

    Many people think first of a nice hot chicken sandwich with gravy and mashed potatoes. So here is such a one for you:

    Hot Chicken Sandwiches ~ Just a good hot and familiar sandwich

    Now to the recipes. All these were rated as 5-star recipes by reviewers. Be sure to try one or two!

    Chicken Chilaquiles ~ This easy casserole uses up your leftovers! Tex-Mex flavors.

    Ferris Wheel Chicken Salad ~ Be sure to read the introduction of this salad!

    Chicken Verde ~ Another easy casserole-style dish with Tex-Mex flavors.

    Chicken Salpicon ~ A Tex-Mex style salad. You can skip the first 5 steps by using your prepared shredded chicken.

    BBQ Chicken Sandwiches ~ Here it is! A good-old BBQ chicken sandwich. You can skip the first 3 steps by using your prepared shredded chicken.

    Thereís a mighty tasty start for you. Now tell us Ė what do you do with shredded chicken?
