There is this AMAZING way to guarantee juicy, flavorful chicken every time…
And the secret is very simple:
Combine chicken breasts with chicken thighs!!!
This little trick makes the juiciest chicken, no more dry chicken breasts!!!
This simple shredded slow cooker chicken is perfect for meal prep! A crock pot chicken breast recipe to use in burrito bowls, sandwiches, salads, soups….
All you need is salt, pepper, olive oil, and a few pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs.
Throw it all together in a slow cooker, let it cook away for a few hours…
All week long, you can add the chicken to any combination you want too!!
(PLEASE NOTE: If you want to make shredded chicken with an Instant Pot, you WILL need liquid in the bowl to allow the pot to come to pressure. so add 1 cup water or chicken broth.)
After its cooked, Use two forks to shred the chicken right in the crockpot. The chicken will absorb any liquid in the pot as you shred it
This is a great “blank canvas” recipe – it’s great as-is, or you can mix it up with additional flavors. Add some fresh thyme sprigs (remove them before shredding the chicken), garlic cloves, rosemary leaves, dried basil, seasoning salt, or any of your other favorite herbs and spices!!
