Slow Cooker Shredded Spicy Chicken

Doing a Whole90, and trying to keep our house clean to sell has been really difficult. My meals have been really simple, and repetitive. Eggs, grilled chicken, tuna salad on repeat. I am not tired of the meals, but I wish I could really get back into my weekend meal planning groove. It's hard to start making food, and then having to leave your house so someone can view it. BUT I am not complaining!

So, I decided to bust out my slow cooker and make some shredded chicken. I wanted something that I could make that could be used for a variety of meals. Since we are also trying to minimalize our pantry, and get rid of a lot of stuff, I decided to throw some Frank's Red Hot into the mix.

If you are into minimal ingredients, something quick, this is a great meal to make. You can also freeze it too!
  • four chicken breast
  • garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper
  • one cup Frank's Red Hot
Add your chicken breasts to the slow cooker, season with all the spices listed above (I didn't measure, but you can I would say maybe a teaspoon of each), and then pour one cup of Frank's Red Hot over the chicken. Let the chicken cook on low 4 - 6 hours. My slow cooker cooks food really fast! At about four hours, I took a fork and shredded the chicken breast. I turned off the slow cooker, and let it sit for about 30 minutes to let it soak in the hot sauce. SO GOOD!  

I made a simple cole slaw to enjoy with the shredded chicken (shredded cabbage, paleo mayo, salt, pepper, celery seed, vinegar - mix and enjoy).

Easy Peasy!
