“Found this on YouTube a few years back. It was done by a chef. I can't find it on there anymore & keep misplacing my written recipe. Figured I'd load it here for safe keeping. Although there are several similar recipes here I didn't find any quite like this one. It's great tasting & if you're in a hurry you can use a roasted chicken from the store! Prep time includes 1 hour to cook chicken if needed. If you get the precooked from the store it only takes me about 15 minutes to shred, mix & roll”
