Having shredded chicken on hand is always a HUGE blessing for me. I make the shredded chicken in the Crock Pot and then store it in freezer baggies. This makes it so easy to use for casseroles, soups and anything I need pre-cooked chicken for!
This works out to 6-8 cups of chicken depending on how much you start with. I like to save serving sizes of about 2 cups in freezer bags.
Cooked/Shredded chicken is good in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, and in the freezer for up to 2 months. Store in a well sealed zip-top bag. Be sure to let out the air before sealing the baggie.
Also to note: Chicken thighs have more flavor, and are perfect to use in soups and baked dishes like enchiladas.
I prefer to use chicken breast meat for tacos, quesadillas, wraps, things that won't be baked.
