This is one of my favorite shredded chicken recipes. It’s super simple to make and packed with flavor. This one made our camping menu a few weeks ago and my whole family ate it up. This recipe also makes for a great freezer meal. If you have lots of leftovers throw it in the freezer and warm up again another day!

Obviously my version of this recipe is a little more macro friendly than the traditional version. The OG recipe calls for a whole cube of butter and a fattier selection of meat. I have made this with chicken thighs a few times and it’s excellent if you can spare a couple more grams of fat per serving.

This is a great one to throw in the slow cooker all day while you play on vacation or work all day. Or if you’d rather throw it in the pressure cooker right now and have some Mississippi chicken sandwiches in under an hour, you can use a pressure cooker. Both turn out excellent!

We love these on rolls, sour dough, and French bread. Add a slice of pepper jack cheese and the sandwich will melt in your mouth!

    1. Hi Jenny, pressure cook time wont need to change. When using frozen meat it just takes a bit longer for your pot to get to pressure.

  1. We really enjoyed this chicken! Does the protein calculation seem a little high per serving? It seems like for the same amount of chicken in other recipes, the protein is less.
