This week I tried just putting chicken breast straight in the crock pot. I added about 1 tbsp. butter and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Cooked it on high for 2-3 hours, stirred it around, and it was done. One of the beauties of this is that I love shredded chicken, but hate the work of putting it on the stove or boiling it and then taking forks to make it happen. This way, the work of shredding the chicken is essentially gone.
I popped it all into a jar and those 3 chicken breast will last for meals all week (and possibly frozen if there are leftovers). We've used it on sandwiches and as an addition to salad and pasta as well this week.
It was an easy addition to dinner last night
- french bread
- cream cheese/basil mixture
- a bit of chicken
- spring mix lettuce
