Slow Cooker Southern Shredded Chicken

Let the slow cooker do all the work for dinner with this delicious and super flavorful & tender slow cooker southern shredded chicken! I love to serve these in rolls and with a side of coleslaw. 


I LOVE me some easy, inexpensive dinners. Especially now that my kids are out of school I swear my grocery bill is crazy high now! My husband does the money & budget for the family so the other day I was like begging him to give me more grocery money cause I have been spending way more than what I have for groceries each time. Well, actually this last trip I took I was inside when a torrential downpour of rain came. I am talking the type of rain where you are soaked to the bones within seconds of stepping outside. So, to avoid the rain I stayed inside the store walking up and down the aisles. Ummm, never do that 🙂 I was adding in random things that looked good, so I am sure all that added to the high bill 🙂 Anyways, I decided to finally leave and just deal with the rain. Bad idea. The cereal boxes were ruined. The bread was soggy. I was drenched. Dripping water. And, with just my luck once I am finally in the car with my soaking wet groceries, the rain STOPS!! What?! I was so annoyed.


That’s why I love this slow cooker southern shredded chicken. It’s very inexpensive and makes enough to feed the entire family for two days. We love these as little sandwiches on rolls. I also serve it alongside some coleslaw too. I actually think it tastes really good to top off your shredded chicken sandwich roll with some coleslaw.


I am not sure why it’s called southern shredded chicken (I am not from the south. Although I have always wished I was. That accent). I found the recipe at Taste of Home and we’ve loved it since, so I kept the name the name the same. Not sure what’s “southern” about it, but who cares, cause it’s delicious!
