Quick and Easy

This is a great recipe for nights when you just don't know what to cook! It is just so easy to pop the ingredients in the slow cooker and voila, in 4-6 hours you have a super flavorful and satisfying meal. We love this chicken over zoodles or your favorite whole grain. To change it up, you can always add the shredded chicken to a pita pocket or to whole grain bread.
This chicken freezes really well so freeze leftovers for busy weeknights in the future!

Make a big batch and store it in the fridge for use throughout the week!
