The chicken I had in the frig already shredded and cooked. When chickens are on sale, I often will make several and bag them up so they are ready to go. Cooked shredded chicken I package in 10 oz. or 2 cup portions, it seems to work good for our family. Very handy on an occasion like this where I needed something quick without a lot of planning.
