Quick, Easy, and Delicious! I pre-shred my chicken by boiling a large quantity of breast meat for 30- 45min on medium heat on the stove. I generally use any veggies or herbs that are almost spoiled to make a stock. I then shred the chicken down and package them in small freezer bags at percise weights. The chicken will last this way up to three weeks. Just a ProTip for anyone looking for it!
