We serve this shredded chicken with so many of our meals that I had to share it with you all. Making this All Purpose Slow Cooker Chicken was a time saver for quick meal prep and easy dinners!
We serve chicken a lot in my house and eat it probably 4-5 times a week. Rather than for lunch for dinner this All Purpose Slow Cooker Chicken is so the perfect idea for quick meal ideas.
And if we aren't slow cooking chicken I'm usually making baked bbq chicken drumsticks. Either way, we love chicken so I got out both my slow cookers and cooked a ton of chicken and was able to add it to salads and wraps for lunch, even had bites of it for a snack, and then toss it into casseroles, tacos, or soups for dinner.
It cut my prep time in half and made thinking of meals so much easier.
All-Purpose Slow Cooker Chicken Instructions:
This recipe is pretty simple. My husband even snacked on some and said he thought it tasted great as is! All you need is chicken boneless and skinless chicken breast, chicken broth, and seasoning.
You can season it any way you like I just use salt and pepper so I can flavor later to go with any meal. I also sometimes like to use seasoning salt.
It gives it that extra flavor for salads and eating plain but not too much that I can't turn it into something else.

Thank you for these great recipes. We eat a lot of chicken and you have just made my prep time so much shorter! Thank you again. How long can you keep the cooked chicken in your refrigerator?
You can leave it in a fridge in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
If you double or triple the recipe do you increase the chicken stock accordingly or use a little less?
I would use a little less then doubled for that.
Can you freeze this for later or would freezing it effect the taste?
Yes you can freeze this. To give it taste that it might lose once defrosted I like to reheat it in a skillet with chicken broth and a little salt and pepper.
