Roasted Chicken Breast for Shredding (if not using rotisserie chicken)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

*1 rotisserie chicken shredded works perfectly for this recipe, but I've also included how to cook you own chicken for shredding as well. I use both methods depending on what I have on hand.

It's really important to use softened cream cheese, or the cream cheese will be lumpy. If your like me, and never plan ahead, you can microwave the cream cheese for 20 - 30 seconds to soften it up.

Prep time represents using already prepared chicken, if you're roasting, add an additional 30 minutes.
