Do you use rotisserie chicken in a lot of recipes like I do? I use it for my Mexican Lasagna, quesadillas, burrito bowls, enchiladas, nachos, and so much more.
Sometimes I do not want to deal with getting the meat off of a store bought rotisserie chicken (and by the way, Costco and Kroger offer it already taken off the bone) and this actually ends up being easier for me. I almost always have chicken in the freezer or the fridge. Right now I have lots of frozen chicken on hand from my stop in to Fresh Market last week on a Tuesday. Every Tuesday they have 2.99/pound chicken and I finally remembered to go there. I feel like their quality is great, too.
Here is what you need:
boneless skinless chicken breast
garlic powder, salt, pepper, or any spices you like, really
Put chicken in a pan or stockpot and either use all chicken broth or half broth/half water like I did. Add in your spices and cook slowly until cooked through. I think if you cook too quickly it can get dry.
Simply shred with two forks after it cools a bit.
Here is what the final product looked like – just like rotisserie chicken but white meat only
Also, I decided to make rice with the leftover liquid. The rice turned out super flavorful. I am trying to waste less food in 2020 so that made me super happy.
This may be the most no-brainer post ever, by the way. You may be thinking – duh! Ha!
