I have been testing recipes for Shredded Chicken Sandwiches this summer. This is such a convenient recipe to pack for lunch. If your family has access to a microwave at lunch time, try freezing this recipe in single serving containers. This also works well for other sandwiches such as Shredded Roast Beef, Country Pulled Pork, or Sloppy Joe Sandwich Filling.

  1. Hi! First of all, LOVE the new look of the website. I just wanted to throw it out there that a super easy time saver to shred the cooked chicken is to throw it in a Kitchen Aid mixer. Use the paddle mixer attachment and turn it on low for a few minutes. Wala! Shredded chicken!
