Budget Friendly For the Freezer Menu Planning Recipes

Crockpot Shredded Chicken

I’m a big fan of shortcuts.  I cook extra and freeze, or throw a big package of chicken breasts in the crockpot and cook them until they shred.  Freeze this crockpot shredded chicken and you can pull out portions for burritos, soup, quesadillas, skillet meals – pretty much anything that you need chicken for.

I’m a tad embarassed to call this a recipe – but it really is a  base for a lot of other recipes I’ll be sharing soon – so we’ll start with this.
