Foodie Friday | Shredded Chicken Burritos

It’s slow cooker season!! Well, I don’t know about you, but it is always slow cooker season at my house because it is SO DAMN EASY to pop a meal in your slow cooker and have it do all of the work for you!

This recipe for Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken has been a favorite of mine and was born from a moment years ago of “What the hell….I’ll throw some stuff in and see how it turns out” (aka I live alone and haven’t been to the grocery store and this is what I have kickin’ around the house). Once I tweaked it to my liking, I found that I could use the chicken for so many other things! Hope you are ready because here we go with Shredded Chicken Burritos:

Ingredients

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp chopped onions (fresh or dried)
  • ½ clove garlic
  • 1 16oz jar of salsa (your choice – green, red, hot, mild. Totally depends on your style)

Optional Toppings

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Black Beans
  • Avocado

Directions

Spray inside of slow cooker with non-stick spray. Place chicken breast in bottom of slow cooker and add pepper, onions, and garlic. Top with salsa. Set slow cooker to low for 4-6 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken from slow cooker and place into a large bowl. Shred with fork (or using this awesome life hack shown here) until no large pieces remain. Serve as you like!
