Super Simple Slow Cooker Shredded Cooking
I’m almost embarrassed to dedicate an entire blog post to this very quick, super simple, unbelievably tasty shredded chicken. It’s just so easy! We use it when we have a taco bar for one of our retreat meals. We use a simple slow cooker ground beef recipe, too.

One slow cooker full of this chicken recipe can feed approximately 20. It can be stretched further on a taco bar with plenty of other toppings and options. For a retreat with 50 ladies, we made one crock of shredded chicken and one of ground beef and had plenty.
We offered corn and flour tortillas and had plenty of other toppings such as lettuce, tomato, black olives, cheese, sour cream. As always, we offered a full salad bar and plenty of desserts, too.
The chicken was a huge hit. I make it at home for my family and we use it to make nachos, shredded chicken sandwiches, and buffalo chicken dip, too.
Here’s what you need to make one crockpot full:
*1 bag of frozen chicken breasts (I use the 3 lb. bag of Great Value)
*1 package taco seasoning (I use Old El Paso because it’s gluten free and one of my GF ladies suggested it to me)
Put the entire bag of frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Sprinkle the package of taco seasoning over the chicken. Pour the 1/2 can of chicken broth over the top. Cover and cook on low for about 6-8 hours. When the cooking time is up, shred the chicken with two forks. It pretty much just falls apart. Dee-licious!
Hope you enjoy!
