My meal prep life-saver!
Approximately 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
Pink Himalayan salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash Table Blend to season (approximately 1/2 teaspoon of each, but adjust to your preferences)
Pour the chicken broth into the slow cooker and then add the chicken breasts. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
Turn the slow cooker to low and cook for 3.5 hours.
Use two forks to shred the chicken breasts.
Cook the shredded chicken on low for an additional 30 minutes.
I portion out the chicken (personally, I use the red protein container from the 21 Day Fix) into ziploc bags and store enough for the next few days in the refrigerator and keep the rest in the freezer. It’s super easy to grab and make quick meals! Add the chicken to soups, sandwiches, salads…anything!
You can cook this chicken to use in practically ANY recipe which is why it’s perfect for meal prepping! Just mix it in with different ingredients and seasonings and you have a bunch of different meals ready to go.
There are so many options to make different salad combinations! The options are really endless. Some other ideas: steak instead of chicken, shredded cheese, black beans, sesame sticks, shredded carrots, dried cranberries, tomatoes, and more. In less than 30 minutes, I have five salads ready to grab and go for lunch during the week.
Have you tried these before? I would love to hear what you put in yours and any other great tips!
