Shredded chicken is crazy easy to make in the slow cooker. It only requires two ingredients – chicken and stock – and doesn't take too long if you don't put too much chicken inside. Once you have shredded chicken, you can use it to make the tacos in the recipe that follows. If you still have some, you can add it to salads, burritos, sandwiches or casseroles.
If you're going to use it for something else, you can skip the barbecue sauce step at the end. If you're going to be piling this chicken into tortillas, the barbecue sauce is a nice touch. It doesn't entirely coat or soak into the chicken, so the flavor of the meat doesn't get lost, but it's a very simple way to flavor the meat without racking up too many more ingredients.
