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.
