3 Shredded Chicken Meal Prep Ideas

Hi! I'm


I'm a Certified Health Coach, longtime blogger, and host of Elizabeth Eats on YouTube. In addition to writing recipes (I love to eat!), I'm a strong believer that life is too short to settle for anything less than living your best life.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite way to meal prep chicken for fantastic meals all week long.

While I love a crispy, butter-covered roasted chicken in the oven as much as the next all-American girl, I also want ways to enjoy healthy meals that don’t have a ton of oil to keep them light and my digestion easy.

Enter: Healthy Shredded Chicken Meal Prep. Click play on the video above (or watch it on YouTube here) to learn how to do it!

The beauty of meal prepping like this is that you can make this chicken any day of the week and it keeps beautifully for 4 days in the refrigerator.

In the video, you’ll learn how to make:

  1. Awesome healthy chicken tacos
  2. A fantastic Za’tar wrap
  3. My favorite bakery chicken salad sandwich

But those are just ideas to get you started!

The concept here is to easily prep as much chicken as you’ll need for the week and then turn it into great-tasting meals over the next 3-4 days. We often do this on a Sunday and have tacos that night, then use the chicken throughout the week.
