Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Recipe
This is the lovely Cate and she is kindly sharing her recipe with us at Easypeasy-Lemonsqueezy! It’s a delicious Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Recipe, or you could call it ‘pulled chicken’ I guess
Cate calls it Twisted Chicken!
A delicious blend of Chicken and paprika with lots of other flavours throw in!
Then you add peppers and onion – simply lovely
Cate’s Shredded Chicken Recipe
Cate found this recipe a long time ago somewhere on Facebook and over time has made some amendments
So anyone out there if it’s yours let me know and I’ll credit you!
It looks flipping good to me and ready when you walk in the door after work, as it’s made in a a slow cooker.
I don’t ever use a slow cooker but maybe I should? Do you?
Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken
This recipe is perfect for the slow cooker, but remember you can also do this in a covered casserole dish in the oven on a low low setting
Deliciously tender and there’s a whole host of things you cab serve it with
Serving Ideas for Shredded Chicken / Pork or Duck – you decide
Shredding meat is so on trend and normally its pork or duck, so this is a nice change!
And you could serve this as a sharing platter – I do so love sharing plates and informal eating!
You could have it in sandwiches, taco’s with tortillas as Cate does, with a jacket potato & salad? So many ideas….
(Interestingly and MANY moons ago I did Home Economics A’Level with Cate at 6th Form 😉 – so I know she knows her stuff!)
Storing and Freezing your Shredded Chicken
This shredded chicken keeps really well in the fridge for up to four days
It can be reheated, over low heat on the hob , or in the microwave.
Make sure it heated through totally though – we don’t want any poorly tummy
This chicken also freezes well.
Simply pack in freezer bags or other storage containers that you have
Try and get as much air out as possible before it goes in the freezer
I freeze for maximum 2 months
