Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite and easiest recipes. First, though, a few highlights from the weekend.
Seeing Spotlight. This was a super tough movie to watch. For those of you not familiar, the movie is based on the true story of how The Boston Globe discovered the scandal within the Catholic Church that came out in the early 2000's. The cast was amazing - so many great actors/actresses. I feel like the movie did a really nice job of handling a hard topic to discuss.
Breakfast at The Shack. I had breakfast with one of my best friends Sunday morning at a place I had been wanting to try, called The Shack. The last time I was at this place, it was a BBQ restaurant. I had heard good things and the food definitely lived up to the hype. The breakfast tacos were amazing, as were the hash browns. They had a bunch of good things on the menu - I can't wait to go back and try some other things!
Star Wars! I finally saw the Star Wars movie. It was awesome. I didn't make it through all of the previous movies before seeing it, but I don't know that I missed anything. I would recommend at least seeing 4 and 5, because I think that gave a good background. Even if I hadn't seen any of them, I still think I would have liked it. I am really excited to see how they expand on the story laid out in this movie.
Onto the recipe! I went through a phase where I would make these salads for lunch every week. I wanted an easy way to make a bunch of chicken, so I came up with this easy recipe.
Crockpot Shredded Chicken
2-3 chicken breasts (frozen or thawed)
2-3 chicken bullion cubes
2 cups of water
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of dried, minced onion
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of Kosher salt
Place chicken in the crockpot (I use a smaller crockpot for this). Add all other ingredients. Cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4 hours. Shred chicken directly in the crockpot with two forks. Cook for about 15-30 minutes longer.
I like how this gives the chicken flavor, and it is super easy! I began using this for the salads, and now I pretty much use it any time I need shredded chicken.
