Slow Cooker Pull Apart Chicken

Ya gotta have those go-to crockpot meals, where you have a hunk of meat and 8 hours until dinner. This was easy set-it-and-forget it recipe with no special ingredients, but with just enough flavor to eat on it's own. This creates a basic shredded chicken recipe, but the chicken would be good in casserole.

My husband and 4 year old ate this with BBQ sauce, I was happy with how it was, and my 11 month old gobbled this up like nobody's business, but he is turning out to be biggest carnivore of the family. I will dread the grocery bill when he is 16! Mark my words!

Slow Cooker Pull Apart Chicken
recipe from Miserly Meals by Jonni McCoy
Serves 4

3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2-3 large) (I used 2 breasts and 2 thighs)
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
4 hamburger buns, for serving

Place the chicken and the rest of the ingredients (except the hamburger buns) in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours. During the last 2 hours of cooking, use a fork to break apart the chicken into strands.

Spoon over hamburger buns and serve. This is also good served on a flour tortilla.
