Easy Way How to Shred Chicken

Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken

With my baby coming in August, I’ve been making a lot of freezer meals. I remember how exhausted I was with my second child and how nice it was not to have to do a lot of cooking that first month after the baby was born. As I compiled my list of freezer meals I wanted to make, I saw that I would need a bunch of shredded chicken for multiple recipes. Here’s an easy way how to shred chicken:

Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken - raw

1 – Fill the crock pot with chicken.

2 – Pour in 1/4 cup water to make sure the chicken stays moist.

3 – Set it on low and let it cook 8-10 hours.

4 – Place chicken on a cutting board. Using two forks, shred the chicken. Mine shredded so easily!

I’m now ready to compile more freezer meals. And for the chicken I don’t need for my freezer meals, I’ll place it in a ziploc bag, date it, and then freeze it for later. It’s convenient to have shredded chicken on hand to pull out when I need it for a recipe. Within in the month, I’ll be sharing my favorite meals I like to freeze, as well as some tips on how to freeze meals.
