COOK’S TIP
For 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast, purchase a deli-roasted chicken. Using two forks shred enough of the chicken breast to make 2 cups, discarding the skin. (Or cut up a 9-ounce package thawed frozen cooked chicken breast strips.) If you have more time, in a covered saucepan cook 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast in 1½ cups water about 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170 F). Drain well. Cool slightly and shred.
