Shredded chicken is so easy to make in the slow cooker. With basically no prep, the end result of this is succulent Greek flavored chicken ready for your disposal.
This recipe is good for 2-3 lbs of chicken. Since this is a shredded chicken recipe you will need to use a boneless, skinless cut. It can be chicken breasts or thighs, whatever you prefer. I used breasts this time but thighs definitely work well too. If you use thighs though, be sure to trim the fat off first.
This recipe can easily be double or tripled depending on the size of your slow cooker. Once done, the meat should be so tender that is shreds easily with a fork. The finished product can be used in so many ways: salads, in a pita, sandwich, etc. Below are a couple of my past plates using the Greek shredded chicken.
