This takes an easy to make dinner, and cut the prep time in half.

I used shredded chicken for this recipe that I had left over. But when I’m in a rush and don’t have time, I’ll pick up pre-cooked shredded chicken from the grocery store that works just as well.

Just make sure you drain the excess moisture to keep this from getting too runny.
