Shredded chicken meat can make a lot of delicious meals. Cook it, and shred it, refrigerate it, and heat it up later, or not... you can use cold cooked shredded chicken meat to make chicken salad. Yay!


Here's how to make shredded chicken. it's very easy. You can use dark meat from the chicken like the legs and thighs, or the white meat from the breast meat, or do what I do, and that's to shred a whole chicken. Just take a whole chicken, rinse it off, and take out the stuff from the cavity of the bird.

Place the bird in a pot of boiling water, and cover it, simmer for about 1 1/2 hours. Cool, and using a knife, remove the legs, separating the drum from the thighs, and removing the meat. Break the meat apart with your fingers and just hand shred it, or use a fork and beak the meat apart. No matter how you do it, cover the meat, and refrigerate it, and use it when you are ready.


Chicken Salad
Use your shredded chicken to make chicken salad, just chop up the meat a little finer, add some minced onions, salt and pepper, and some mayonnaise and mix it up, I swear it will taste better than canned chicken or canned tuna, Yay!

Chicken Stir Fry
Just heat up a fry pan or wok with some cooking oil, add some garlic and ginger, and toss that meat in there, stir it around, add some soy sauce, oyster sauce, minced scallions, you are good to go baby... Yay!

Fake Roasted Chicken
Fake? Yes. Fake in a good way. Just heat up some shredded chicken in a pan, with some oil and garlic, then add in some canned or bottled brown gravy, oh yeah, simple is king man! Who wants to slave roasting a bird? I don't. I did enough cooking.... well that's debatable, but I'm a lazy ass..haha. Fake Roasted Chicken is all Yay Yay!!!


So as you can gather, shredding some chicken tonight for some future use is totally a good thing. You hungry? Hey you can snack on some shredded chicken, make any kind of snack with it. Place it on some French bread with some garlic butter and stick it in the toaster oven. There's a lot of things you can do with it, get creative.

Until next time Ron
