Having the ability to whip out some delicious chicken to have on hand for Tacos, Burritos and even Enchiladas is crazy convenient.. especially if you have kids and you are trying to save money.
If you have an Instant Pot or, even a Crock Pot, you can make that happen by dumping a few simple ingredients together and pushing a button or two. Alright.. you *might* have to do a little shredding at the end, there is nothing better than being able to make a filling meal at home without having to drag the family out to spend a wad of cash.
Because face it, it’s not cheap to eat out.
This easy chicken recipe can be made from frozen or thawed chicken in 30 minutes or less – enjoy it with tortilla sliders or in your favorite burrito or enchilada recipe.

*If you are using a crock pot, simply add all of the ingredients and set the pot for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low heat. Shred with two forks and give it a stir to incorporate all of the ingredients before adding more or less salt, to taste.
We topped ours with just a tiny bit of cheese, too (completely optional!)
