This Smoked Old Bay Chicken is perfect for meal prepping!
It’s simply seasoned, smoked for extra yumminess, and then just shred it up and use any way you’d like.
I keep mine in a covered container in the fridge to use as a salad topping, in soups, wraps, tacos, and to make chicken salad.
It’s honestly a good little snack too!
How to Make Smoked Old Bay Chicken
This makes a lot, so I plan ahead to use it in several meals throughout the week.
Drizzle 6 chicken breasts with olive oil and brush the oil on both sides of the chicken.
Then season both sides with Old Bay seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper.
Old Bay does already have some salt, so go a little light on the kosher salt.
Next stop is the smoker!
Set your smoker or pellet grill to 225 degrees and place the chicken breasts right on the grates.
The chicken will smoke for about an hour and a half total.
And all you really need to do from here is flip them halfway through 🙂
Smoked Old Bay Chicken is done once it reaches 165 degrees.
I would recommend to start monitoring the temperature at the one hour mark.
Cook time will depend on how thick the chicken breasts are, so they may takes a bit more or less than 1 1/2 hours.
Let these cool slightly before shredding them, or you could even dice them.
SO many ways to enjoy this meal prep chicken recipe!
I even made some smoked garlic at the same time, taking advantage of the large cook space on my Ironwood 885.
