I know I promised I would do a review a day of my Influenster Campus VoxBox, but I just had to share my insanely simple way of shredding chicken. I have been meal planning like crazy this week because I am visiting S and always like to try out recipes on him first!
When I cook chicken, I cook as much as I will need for the week at once. Sometimes, if I just have a recipe or two that need the chicken, I will take the rest and put it in freezer bags, separated into breasts, and pop them in the freezer for later. It makes it nice for when I am not here so S can thaw one to throw in a quesadilla or on pasta.
Using the crockpot makes it SO SIMPLE. It honestly is just three steps.
1. Put chicken breasts and your desired seasonings in your crockpot, and cover them with chicken broth.
2. Let it cook for 3.5-4 hours, depending on the thickness.
3. Remove from the crock pot and shred.
That’s it. I promise.
For those of you that need recipes to feel whole, here you go!
Easy Shredded Chicken.
- As many chicken breasts as will fit in your crock pot
- Chicken Broth to cover
- Seasonings to taste
Place chicken in the bottom of your crockpot. Sprinkle liberally with the seasonings of your choice, and cover with chicken broth. Cover and let cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Once ready, remove the chicken and shred with either two forks or pulse in a mixer. Place in a covered container to store for future use.
