With school soon approaching for many, the dilemma with what to do for dinner is back. No more lazy summer days and eating when it’s convenient. Back to School time means more activities, more on-the-go and a bigger need for a scheduled meal plan. And meals that can be on the table in at least 30 minutes.

When I’m in a time crunch to get dinner on the table, one of my favorite go-to dishes is something with shredded chicken. I’ll cook up a big batch of chicken in the crock pot over the weekend, shred it up and then divide it into several containers. You can freeze some if you want and put some in the refrigerator to use throughout the week.

UPDATE: I recently purchased an Instant Pot for cooking a whole chicken to shred…best purchase ever! Cooks the chicken SO much faster and always perfect. And it does SO much more…You gotta check it out!)

Here are 50 recipes with shredded chicken that will help you out when it comes to dinner crunch time. There’s no need to run to the nearest fast food chain when you can whip up shredded chicken tacos in 15 minutes!

(Psst. at the end of these 50 shredded chicken recipes, I’ve listed several ways to make the shredded chicken to use.)

  1. Yummy! I am definitely planning to make use of these ideas. We eat a lot of chicken and I’ve been really getting into using my crock pot more often so this would be perfect!

  3. On that chilaquiles casserole, how many cups of shredded chicken do you use? I rarely use chicken breasts unless they are Zaycon so I’m not sure about size, etc.
