This recipe produces approximately 6 cups of shredded chicken.
Do not use more than 3 lbs of chicken for this recipe or your chicken will be dry. I tend to use between 2.75 and 3 lbs.
You may have some excess liquid after shredding your chicken. It will continue to be absorbed as it sits, giving you juicy and flavorful shredded chicken you can use 1,001 different ways.
