Moist, juicy, flavorful chicken that literally shreds itself! This Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken is the best I've ever tasted....no barbecue sauce needed!!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am not much of a football fan....or a sports fan, in general. It probably stems from the fact that I didn't really play sports as a kid, and because of that, I have very little understanding of the rules or intricacies of the game. Any game, really...but football, especially. And yet, I LOVE having people over to watch the games! For the food (naturally)....!
So when we were getting together with some friends for this past weekend's game, I knew I wanted to make something delicious. Something different. Something that would make everyone happy. And shredded chicken came to mind! I've never really made shredded chicken, except to use in tacos....but I remembered a shredded pork recipe I made once, long ago, that Jorden loved! I pulled it out on game day, threw the ingredients in the slow cooker, and gave it a go. Hours later, I tasted it. And....it tasted NOTHING like how I remembered it!
At the end of the day, the pulled chicken was probably the BEST part of the day. When Aaron Rodgers is out, there's not a whole lot to see. Or at least not much you want to see....even I can tell you that much!!
