Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Chicken is Fantastic! I’m in love with Magic Chicken. It’s delicious and so easy to make! I shred the chicken, bag it, and freeze it for later. I’ve used it for casseroles, chicken and pasta, tacos, and rice bowls. It’s great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome to help with Meal Prep I make this recipe weekly or at least twice a month in my house. We freeze it in 2 cup measurements to have ready for any meal that requires chicken. It's easy to make, and I usually use water and not a lot of the Seasoned salt so that it's low sodium for my family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even works for pork and beef! Fabulous for chicken, but why limit your choices. Go for the beef and pork, you are a winner no matter what protein you choose.
