If you're looking for an easy, no fuss recipe that will give you a versatile protein base to work your meals around all week then you have to try my go-to shredded chicken! This cooks itself in the slow cooker and you can spice it up anyway you want it to use in meals all week long.
I will switch between leaving the chicken plain so it can used with a lot of different flavours throughout the week or I'll spice it up differently each time so I don't get bored. Once the chicken is cooked and shredded, I add it to pretty much whatever I feel like. I use it a lot in my salads, stir fry's, rice and veggies mixtures as well as tacos or wraps. The list is endless on what you can use this chicken for. It makes for an easy week of meals that you barely have to think of - just make up the chicken on a lazy Sunday and divide it up for the week so it is grab and go ready!
My daughter - the pickiest eater around - loves when I have this on hand so she can decide on her own meals around the chicken.
