If you’re wondering what to do with shredded chicken, these Healthy Shredded Chicken Recipes are just for you!

So let’s get into it.
I got home yesterday from literally what felt like the longest day ever, and was like nooooooooo I don’t want to cook. But I knew I went grocery shopping and had food in the fridge that I could toss together into a respectable dinner.
In times like that (which seems to happen every week), who wants to cook? Eric and I don’t typically make it to the house until about 7-8pm at night whether it’s CrossFit, evening client appointments, or just a late night at the office by the time we get home we are TIRED, and who wants to cook and clean at that point? I mean it’s practically bed time.
So I wanted to share my go to shredded chicken meals when I just can’t muster up much energy to cook. I will prep many of these shredded chicken recipe ideas in advance so that I can just pop it in the oven or reheat it when I get home to make it even faster.
But come on, most of the time I don’t even have it that much together so as long as I can prep Instant Pot Shredded Chicken in advance. I actually keep shredded leftover chicken in the freezer so that my protein is cooked and ready to toss into a quick weeknight meal.
