Shredded chicken ideas?

I roast two whole chickens at a time. We eat one for dinner and I shred the other one up for the next day. Normally I make chicken and dumplings but DH is burnt out on that. I need dinner ideas to use up the shredded chicken.

I am also not a fan of leftover chicken being prominently featured like putting taco seasoning on it and calling it chicken tacos, it never tastes right to me. So bonus points if you can suggest something that disguises that leftover poultry flavor.

We love buffalo chicken.stuff. I add a bunch of hot sauce and either make a buffalo chicken roll up (pizza dough with buffalo chicken.and cheese on top rolled up and baked) or buffalo chicken grilled cheese. I use Texas toast for the grilled cheese sandwiches so that the bread can hold up to the weight of it. We also like chicken BBQ. Just add a good amount of BBQ cause and put it on a bun or make it like the buffalo chicken grilled cheese.

You can do green salsa and cheese on it and make a taco bake by crunching up taco shells on top. Yummmm

We do sour cream chicken enchiladas. Or mix the chicken with some cream cheese, bell pepper, seasonings and roll into flour tortillas. Bake in oven for taquitos. Or use the same filling wrapped up in crescent dough and bake until golden.

I make chicken taco's but do not use taco sauce, I add onion powder, garlic powder and lemon pepper. Top with lettuce, tomato, cheese.
You can also make chicken enchiladas, just use the chicken instead of ground beef. easy and both are delicious.

Re: Shredded chicken ideas?

Thanks everyone! I ended up making a tamale pie and DH liked it. I'll give some of these a try next time I roast two chickens!
