  1. An easy way to shred chicken is to place it in a stand mixer or a bowl with a hand mixer and beat it until it shreds.
  2. You can also use chunks of chicken instead of shredded for this recipe.
  3. Brown rice can be substituted for white rice, and will also freeze easier as it is more stable.
  4. Switch up your vegetables to your liking for this recipe, nothing is off limits.
  5. Shredded rotisserie chicken can also be used in a pinch.
