There’s nothing like a tried-and-true crockpot recipe. They’re effortless and most of the time, filling and flavorful!

This is one of those dump and cook recipes. In other words, just put all of the ingredients in the pot, set a timer, and wait for the end result.

Tender. Tasty. And all too easy!

Shredded chicken is also super versatile.

The first time I made this recipe, I made chicken tacos for my family. To no surprise, they were a hit!

But you can also use the chicken in pasta dishes, on top of pizza, in soup… there are too many ways to list. So, you’ll just have to let me know how you get creative when you make it!

In the meantime, I’ll let you take a look at the recipe so you can get to making your own batch.

And it’s so easy to pop in the microwave if you’re looking for a quick meal before heading out the door.

Let’s say… to your son’s baseball game? I’ve got some experience there!
