What kind of chicken is best for this recipe? I recommend using boneless, skinless thighs roasted at 400 Fahrenheit. Allow to cool slightly before shredding. But you can use any part of the chicken that you like. If using breasts I recommend following the Brined Seared & Baked Chicken Breast recipe https://cleavercooking.com/brined-seared-baked-chicken-breast/ but season only with salt and pepper.
