A lot of recipes call for shredded chicken. It's a kitchen staple that blends harmoniously with other ingredients. This is also the reason I love tossing it to my rotisserie. It just adds that lovely texture and chicken flavor to my favorite dishes.

Whether it's store-bought or you're using up those leftover chicken at your last dinner, these shredded chicken recipes are terrific and worth-devouring!
Shredded chicken sandwiches
Stuffing shredded chicken into sandwiches should be fun and straightforward. That's why I love making these hot chicken caesar sandwiches.
The recipe is cooked using a slow cooker and features a burst of exciting flavors and aroma, thanks to creamy Caesar dressing, parmesan cheese, and spices. It's delicious on its own, but serving them with a handful of potato chips and fresh fruit salad will make this sandwich more desirable to eat.

Shredded chicken salads
Shredded chicken is a default ingredient for salads. It adds a nice and chewy texture and top-rated flavor to the mixture.
If you're a newbie to the world of shredded chicken salad, then you might start with this Asian salad recipe.
The dish calls for red cabbage, Chinese cabbage, carrots, peas, fresh cilantro, onions, oranges, almonds, and white sesame seeds for garnish. The result? A crunchy and hearty salad that's bound to impress everyone!
You may use regular green cabbage instead if you're running out of Chinese cabbage.
Shredded chicken appetizers
Another great way to use shredded chicken is to turn them into hearty appetizers, just like these buffalo chicken cheese balls!
The combination of cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and blue cheese provides delicious creamy goodness to the recipe. The creamy flavor is even more enhanced with buffalo sauce, spices, almonds, and fresh Italian parsley.
To make it extraordinary, serve them with crackers, pretzels, carrots, and celery sticks.
Shredded chicken dip
If you feel creative today and you have a handful of shredded chicken in your fridge, then turning them into this buffalo chicken dip is the best thing to do!
The dip is made with cream cheese, ranch dressing, Mexican blend cheese, shredded chicken, and red hot buffalo sauce. It's filled with a spicy flavor that could make everyone go crazy!
If you aren't spicy, you can try this cheese bacon BBQ chicken dip. It's loaded with cheesy goodness coming from cream cheese and cheddar.
Shredded chicken casseroles
There are plenty of things to do with your shredded chicken, and one of them is turning it into casseroles.
My favorite casserole dish is cheddar bacon ranch chicken pasta. The recipe calls for spiral pasta, sour cream salsa, cumin, black beans, corn, and spices.
The addition of shredded cheese provides a creamy flavor to the overall dish. Plus, it's easy to put together!
Add chili powder or cayenne pepper to the mixture if you want to incorporate a spicy kick!
