4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken is an easy recipe for shredded chicken. You can use this chicken in all kinds of dishes from tacos, to burrito bowls, to salads, to quesadillas. This chicken is also freezer friendly.
4 ingredients and your slow cooker is all it takes for this simple but versatile 4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken recipe. You put the ingredients in the slow cooker and let it do all of the work. The only thing you will have to do is shred the chicken towards the end of the cooking time.
This is a shredded chicken recipe that you can use in so many ways or even freeze it for later. I use it in tacos, burrito bowls, salads, or even put it on a whole wheat bun and make a sandwich.
I have certain recipes that I make time and time again and are my go-to recipes time and again. This is one of those recipes. When I do my meal prep on Sundays I sometimes add this into the rotation so I have the meat ready during the week. I often will freeze half of this so that when I am in a hurry and out of ideas I can pull this chicken out and heat it up. I am all about those freezer friendly meals when things are cray around our house.
You will see that this recipe calls for a jar of salsa. Use whatever variety you like from a chipotle flavor to homemade salsa to a black bean and corn salsa. I like to use the black bean and corn salsa because it adds the corn into the recipe which I like. You could always use a regular salsa and add 1/2 cup corn instead if you like corn in your shredded chicken.
