Chicken is a STAPLE in my house!! Since joining Weight Watchers and beginning weight lifting my chicken intake has increased by at least 10 times! Cooking chicken can be extremely time-consuming, I love using crock pot shredded chicken on my salads, in casseroles, sandwiches, and just for snacks with apples!! (I have included links to some great products that I have bought on my own and we love. You can buy them as well through my online sales links)
I love making Crock Pot Shredded Chicken to freeze in bulk for quick meals and to save time making dinner! Plus I get to use my -> Crock Pot and my big red -> Kitchen Aid Mixer! (Yes I color coordinate my kitchen appliances with the decor in my house) Typically when I pick up my Zaycon orders I will have the Crock Pots pulled out and filled to cook chicken when I get home! (Don’t know what Zaycon is check out my post -> here)
Crock Pot Shredded Chicken Directions:
Spray your Crock Pot with nonstick spray (I use my -> home made spray)
Fill your Crock Pot with 1/4 parts of broth and 3/4 parts of water. Or water with some chicken bullion.
Place your boneless skinless chicken breasts and cover with lid
Cook on low for 4-6 hours till chicken is done
Remove chicken from Crock Pot and place in Kitchen Aid Mixer
Mix on low with paddle attachment till you reach the “shredded” level you want. The longer or faster it goes the finer the shred is on the chicken.
*You can add some juice to the shredded chicken for moisture*
This is a HUGE time saver for me. I also bulk cook my -> ground beef to save a ton of time for cooking dinners during the week!
