Cooked chicken in the freezer saves time!
One of the quickest ways to get dinner on the table is to have a freezer stocked with some precooked or prepped ingredients. You’ll still get a fresh meal on the table – plus it will save you time!
The best trick in my arsenal of quick meals is the precooked packages of ground beef or shredded chicken in my freezer. But sometimes I look at that package and think to myself, “What am I going to make with this tonight?” Well, here are a few easy meal ideas for that package of shredded chicken in your hand:
- Toss it on a green salad
- chicken salad sandwiches
- hot chicken sandwiches
- quick chicken noodle soup
- pot pie
- chicken & dumplings
- lasagna or stuffed shells
