Yield: 6 People


  • 4 Chicken breasts, Large, About 3 pounds in total
  • 1 cup Chicken broth, Low sodium
  • Salt , To taste
  • Pepper, To taste
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1 tsp Onion powder

  • Place chicken in crockpot (6 quart or larger).
  • Pour chicken broth.

  • Mix until combined.
  • Cover and cook on Low heat for 6 hours or High heat for 3-4 hours.
  • Shred chicken with two forks.
  • There will be a decent amount of juice and broth. I don't discard it because it keeps the chicken moist and juicy. However, you can remove the broth and store it in the fridge and use it later for soups and other dishes. Enjoy!

  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for 3-5 days.
