Though I love my Whole Chicken in the Crock-Pot recipe, it's a bit tiring dealing with all those bones. And so I went looking for a way to make good chicken breasts in the crock-pot. This Slow-Cooker Shredded Chicken sounded great.
I bought a 6 lb bag of chicken breasts and dumped them, frozen, in the crock-pot with about a 1/4c of water. Following the directions, I sprinkled the chicken with the dictated spices. As it cooked, it smelled wonderful, thanks to the garlic powder. I checked the chicken at 7 hours and left it in for an additional 30 minutes. Next time, I'll probably cook it for 8 hours just to be safe and worry-free.
When I took the chicken out, it was clear I hadn't really needed the water. Six pounds of chicken was shredded in about 5 mintues - amazing! And it tasted great! In the end, I had 6 bags of 2 servings each to freeze. Wow!
I've since used this chicken for wraps and salads. It's better, I think, than the whole chicken in the crock-pot. It's flavorful and nicely (and easily!) shredded. This will become a standard for me to make every few weeks.
