If you want to save yourself some time you can use a rotisserie chicken. Just shred meat off chicken making sure it is all free of bones.
You can also throw some chicken breast in your slow cooker that you can use for this recipe. Check out my post for All-Purpose Slow Cooker Chicken for how I use this.
