Batch cooking is your ticket to creating hot meals in 15-30 minutes. Today I'm showing you how to make Easy Meal Prep Chicken. Let's get to it!
Prepare slow cooker: spray with cooking spray or use a crockpot liner for easy clean-up.
Pour chicken broth over chicken.
Remove chicken to platter and shred with 2 forks. Add a little of the broth to the shredded meat, to keep from drying out.
See Notes for Storage Instructions.
Use a crockpot liner for easy clean-up.
One pound of chicken will yield about 3 cups of cooked meat.
Cooking times may vary, based on your appliance.
REFRIGERATOR STORAGE (use within 1 week): use this option if you will use the chicken within a week. Store shredded chicken in an airtight container.
FREEZER STORAGE: Using a permanent marker, label freezer bags with the date, quantity and item (i.e. 2 cups shredded chicken, 10-7-18) before filling. Measure 2 cups of shredded chicken & place in a freezer bag. Remove as much air as possible and seal bag. Allow to cool in the refrigerator for a few hours before moving to the freezer. A FoodSaver works well for freezer storage. For best results use in 2-3 months, although the pre-cooked chicken can be frozen for 6 months.
