Easy Cubed or Shredded Chicken

Easy & Flavorful Cubed or Shredded Chicken

There are so many recipes that call for shredded or cubed chicken and this is such an easy way to always have some on hand.  It’s so easy and convenient to cook up some chicken and portion it out to 1 cup, 2 cup, or whatever and then freeze it in freezer bags so it’s ready to use anytime.

Or if it so happens that you haven’t planned ahead too much to make a certain recipe and you don’t have any pre-cooked chicken in the freezer but you do have frozen chicken breasts, this is a super quick and easy way to turn those frozen breasts into the cubed or shredded chicken that you might need for a recipe you’re wanting to make spur-of-the-moment.

I never thaw the chicken breasts and this method works beautifully all the time.  In about 20 minutes I have the chicken I need for whatever I’m making.

If you don’t use all the chicken you cooked, put it in a container or zip-top bag to use later on a salad or in another recipe.
