Stock your freezer

Today is a batch cooking day for chicken. I usually do chicken salad for dinner when I batch cook chicken because it is quick and easy to put together.

Cook 6 pounds of chicken with your preferred method. I usually cook it in a large skillet.

Use two forks or a Kitchen Aid Mixer with the paddle attachment to shred the chicken.

If you have a favorite chicken salad recipe feel free to use it. I like this one because it still tastes great even if you leave out the onions for picky kids or for allergy reasons (that’s me!).
