Here's What to Serve with Shredded BBQ Chicken:
There are no true limits to the number of sides you can create with a chicken dish. And when it's something as versatile as shredded BBQ chicken, you have more wiggle room to play around. There is nothing better then chicken breasts + barbecues.
There are chances you have a lover of all things spicy in your friend group. So, for them, you could make a simple slaw with a vinegar-based dressing and some diced jalapeños or green chilies. If you want to keep it light, a tossed salad with ranch dressing goes perfectly well.
But what about all the rest of them? You can't stir your pot of chili and hope that it will satisfy everyone's cravings. Therefore, we've highlighted a list of some crowd-cheering sides.
Either with skinless chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breasts, shred the chicken with forks once thoroughly cooked and tender. Add BBQ sauce, salt and pepper or whatever additional ingredients you like!
