This shredded chicken recipe is ridiculously good. It was the perfect blend of sweet and spicy, and because it was cooked in the crockpot it was perfect! I serve it on tacos, and we gobbled them up!
My one word of warning is that because it is chicken, it will dry out if you leave it in too long, so seriously check it, and stop cooking when it is cooked through. For me it was about 3.5 hours. At that point, I shredded the chicken, and turned the crockpot off, then I let it sit in it for a half hour and soak in more of the yumminess, at which point I actually put it in the fridge because we were planning to have it for the next day.
