Shredded chicken sandwiches can be made by combining canned chicken, potato chips and cream of chicken soup in a sauce pan; the sandwiches can be assembled after the mixture is thoroughly heated. These sandwiches can be placed on bread or buns.
The recipe for shredded chicken sandwiches calls for two cans of chicken, 1 cup of potato chips and one average sized can of cream of chicken soup. For a more thoroughly heated mixture, the ingredients can be combined in a crock pot and left to warm for several hours. The mixture goes best on toasted hamburger buns.
Canned chicken does not always have to be used for the recipe, simple shredded chicken can be used to reduce the amount of preservatives and chemicals in the recipe. To make shredded chicken, add boneless, skinless chicken breasts to a skillet of simmering olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the chicken to cook until it reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This will ensure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked and does not become dry. After the chicken has cooled, shred with a fork and place into a sealed container. Shredded chicken will last around 3 days refrigerated and around 2 months when placed in the freezer.
