Three Easy dinners to make with shredded chicken
I love the ease of grabbing pre-cooked chicken on busy nights. If you have checked out any of my meal planning posts, you know that I always have protein thawing or cooked for easy meal assembly. These three easy dinners to make with shredded chicken come together in a matter of minutes, all are gluten free, delicious, and sure to please the whole family!
Oven Baked BBQ Chicken Nachos
Hello, my name is Lisa and my super power is to turn ANY left overs into Nachos! Leftover chicken – Nachos, leftover Beef – Nachos, pork – you guessed it! …. You get the idea.
For this recipe you can use fresh or leftover rotisserie chicken and get the same delicious results.
You will need:
Tortilla Chips ( I prefer to make my own tortilla chips with corn tortillas in the air fryer – it is super easy to do and much healthier)
BBQ sauce ( making your own is super easy or else use a clean ingredient brand like Primal Kitchen – with no sugar)
Place chips on a baking sheet, top with chicken, beans, and cheese – bake in pre-heated oven at 400 for 10-15 min or until cheese is browned and bubbly.
Top with Avocado, tomato, black olives, plain greek yogurt or sour cream and enjoy!
Chicken Enchiladas Verde
I love enchiladas! This is a delicious, fast and easy recipe! You can stuff and roll the tortillas or layer them like a lasagna, either way you will love them!
You Will Need:
tortillas ( I use corn tortillas )
A jar of Green enchilada sauce (look for one without dyes or HFCS)
Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
Lay the tortillas out and coat both sides with the enchilada sauce, place the chicken and some cheese on the tortillas and roll up. Cover enchiladas with remaining sauce and as much cheese as you want. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot. I like to broil for an additional 5 min to get the cheese brown and crispy.
Serve with the plain yogurt or sour cream
White Chicken Chili
My beautiful sister Kristyn, made THE best White Chicken Chili when she came to visit me in Charleston. I hope that my rendition makes her proud <3
You will need:
5 cups Chicken Broth
A can of White beans
A jar of Green salsa, I like tomatillo (look for one without dyes or HFCS)
Spices that you like, such as cumin, oregano
To make :
Put the broth, chicken, beans and salsa in a pot and heat through, add spices to your liking.
Serve with Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream, cheese, chips, avocado

I can never have enough Mexican food. These look delicious!
mhmm this made me hungry.. time for dinner lol!
Once you have the spices down pat, you’ll just need to cook your food on the stove. I usually find that the stovetop works best for me as long as I have a stove that can handle hot pans. You’ll want to cook your chili at about 160 degrees so it will be nice and hot.
