Is there anything better for slow cooking meat than the um...slow cooker? Seriously, it does the best job of it & one thing I really love doing is throwing chicken in there on low for 4-6 hours until it shreds with a fork. Come on, that's awesome.
A few days ago, I threw a bunch of chicken breasts in the slow cooker with some chicken broth so I could shred it and keep it in the refrigerator for quick meals, soups, sandwiches, etc. I've been seeing this recipe floating around on Pinterest for awhile and knew I wanted to give it a try.
-chicken, cooked and shredded
-plain greek yogurt
-green onion, sliced
-lime juice to taste
-salt/pepper to taste
You mostly make this recipe to taste. The original recipe called for mayo, but I never have that so I used about a tblsp of greek yogurt. I started with 2 cups of shredded chicken, added the greek yogurt, and 1 avocado. Then you can throw in a handful of sliced green onions, cilantro and season to taste with the lime juice, salt & pepper. I also added a dash of cayenne for a tiny little kick.
This was SO good. We scarfed it up - use it in sandwiches, in pitas, with tortilla chips - or if you're detoxing off sugar like me (I'm on day 17 ps!) you can scoop some in a few pieces of Bibb lettuce and make lettuce wraps.
Easy, healthy & totally delicious.
