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!

Cate's Twisted Chicken Recipe

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 šŸ˜‰ – so I know she knows her stuff!)

Storing and Freezing your Shredded Chicken 

Storing 

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 

Freezing 

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
