I don’t know if it’s because the weather is getting warmer, or if it’s because this pregnancy is wearing me out, or if I have just been getting plain lazy at night, but I have been struggling with dinner lately. I’m blaming it a little on all of the above. But I do know that I’ve had to come up with some easier dinners than normal.
One thing that has saved me on more than one occasion is having cooked, shredded chicken in the freezer. The other day as I was thinking of what to make for dinner, one of those bags in my freezer kept jumping out at me. But what would I make with it? That’s when I got the idea to compile a list of recipes that can use shredded chicken – or a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store! – to make getting dinner on the table even easier. These are perfect for not only easy meals, but as ways to use up leftover chicken as well!!
