So recently I posted on Instagram and Facebook that I was making my weekly shredded chicken in the crock pot. I was shocked at how any questions I got about it. I thought everyone made shredded chicken in the crock pot weekly. Apparently I am in the minority. I will make it every Monday. I use it in salad, soups, chicken salad, quesadillas, chicken nachos, etc. It is nice to have a quick and healthy protein to throw in any dish. So just in case there are some of you out there that haven’t heard cooking chicken in the crockpot is a phenomenal idea here is how I do it.
I have a big family on my mom’s side. If we are all in attendance it is well over 50 people. When we get together we always do potlucks, pitch-ins, a dish to pass, covered dishes…what do you call it? Basically we all bring a side dish or a dessert to share with everyone else. There are a few staples that need to be at our family gatherings or I am disappointed, namely Broccoli Salad, Strawberry Pretzel Dessert, and Oreo balls. Recently this beef made with giardiniera sauce is quickly becoming a family fave as well.
