This is a crockpot recipe taken from the cookbook Miserly Meals by Jonni McCoy.
3/4 # boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 C water
1 tsp vinegar
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Italian seasoning (I used a make-your-own version also pulled from this same cookbook)
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp celery salt (I have never used this…)
Mix up all the ingredients except the chicken in the crockpot. After mixed, add the chicken in. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours (I’ve cooked it on high for 3-4 too). During the last two hours of cooking, use a fork to break apart the chicken into strands The longer it cookes the easier this becomes. (I’ve also shredded the chicken five minutes before eating it…)
Spoon this onto hamburger buns and serve. The recipe says it’s also good on a flour tortilla, though I haven’t tried that one yet.
I usually double this recipe, though when you do this, you double everything except the water because that much water is too much.
