I find myself using recipes that call for shredded chicken at least 1-2 times each week. For that reason, I always cook up a large batch of shredded chicken in my slow cooker every Sunday and then store it in the refrigerator or freezer to use at a later date. Doing this will save you time but will also make last-minute dinners a breeze as you already have the cooked poultry on hand. It is always much easier to eat and cook healthy when you plan ahead.

  1. Place chicken in the bottom of slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
