You can use any chicken for this recipe. You can boil a chicken, roast a chicken or even use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.
I used a smoked chicken. I took a whole chicken, seasoned it with 1 Tablespoon Malcom’s Bonafide Chili Seasoning and smoked it on my pellet grill until it hit 165 degrees in breast. I let it cool completely, before shredding the chicken.
