Easy Shredded Chicken


The easiest way to make a batch of slow cooker chicken. Works well for any recipe that requires cooked shredded chicken. We love to eat it on sandwiches with BBQ sauce. Use the chicken right away in your favorite recipes. Or, allow chicken to cool and portion into zip-top bags and freeze for up to 2 months.

  • 3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 cup chicken broth

  • ½ teaspoon seasoned salt, or to taste


  1. Place chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour in chicken broth and seasoned salt. Cover and cook on High until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 3 to 4 hours, or on Low for 6 to 8 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken breasts should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  2. Remove chicken and shred with 2 forks.
