  • Cook on Low until the chicken is easily shreddable, 6 to 8 hours. An instant-read thermometer should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Shred the chicken with 2 forks and stir with the salsa mixture.

Cook's Notes:

As a low-carb option just serve in a bowl, similar to stew, and top with grated cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and chopped scallions.

Great for filling tacos and burritos or even as the meat for a tortilla soup. Use your imagination to create other menu ideas.
