Easy Shredded Chicken

Pin It


This past weekend was so super busy that I didn't have a whole lot of time to think about dinner.  Still, I wanted to be sure that we were not so busy we couldn't think about eating healthily.  I was perusing the internet last week and came across this super easy shredded chicken that you just toss in the slow cooker and forget about!

You can have this as a filling for tacos, burritos, nachos, over rice (the sauce is amazing!) or as I did, on a salad.  It was delicious!

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1 packet Ranch dressing
1/2 cup water
1T minced fresh garlic
2tsp chili powder
2tsp cumin
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or more if you're feeling spicy!)

Add your chicken to the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, mix all of the rest of the ingredients together, then pour over the chicken.
Cook on low 5-6 hours, or high 3-4 hours.
Once cooked, shred the chicken and serve!
