How do you cook shredded chicken?
You can buy pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and shred, or you can cook the chicken before making these Chicken Quesadillas and shred with two forks. To make shredded chicken, place chicken breasts into a saucepan and pour in enough water to cover. Place over medium heat, bring to a boil, and simmer until chicken meat is no longer pink, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer chicken breasts to a bowl, allow to cool, and shred the chicken meat with 2 forks.
