  • Place 2 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1⅓ to 1½ pounds) in the insert of a slow cooker. Pour enough chicken broth over the chicken to cover, about 1 cup.
  • Add garlic, diced onion, garlic powder, sea salt, and ground pepper.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
  • Remove the chicken and shred with two forks.
  • Makes about 3 cups shredded cooked chicken.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have leftover cooked chicken on hand to make this recipe, buying an organic rotisserie chicken from the market is the most convenient solution. Almost as convenient, and what I do most often, is to throw some chicken breasts in the slow cooker. It’s easy, economical, and you control the ingredients.
