Recipe Notes

For the chicken, you can cook it any way you’d like. Or even buy cooked shredded chicken from the store or shred up a rotisserie chicken. My favorite ways to to cook and shred the chicken:

  • Slow Cooker: Add chicken breasts and 1/4 cup of water to your slow cooker. Sprinkle breasts with salt and pepper. Cook on high for about 2 hours until fully cooked. Remove breasts and shred with two forks.
  • Instant Pot: Add chicken breasts and 1/4 cup of water to your Instant Pot. Sprinkle breasts with salt and pepper. Cook on Manual High Pressure for 12 minutes. Natural Release for 5 minutes then Quick Release the remaining pressure. Remove breasts and shred with two forks
