We eat a lot of chicken at our house, and a lot of recipes call for shredded chicken- from casseroles to Mexican dishes to chicken salad. I buy a bag of frozen chicken breasts, stick them in the crockpot with a little bit of water and 8 hours later you have chicken falling part and easy to shred. You can stick it in the fridge and use it for your recipes that week. I assumed everyone did this, but I have found that many people bake the chicken breasts or bake an entire chicken and debone it, etc. The crockpot way is the easy way!
