Crock Pot Shredded Chicken + Thursday Randoms

Eh hem. You see this mess? DO you SEE this mess? This would be my little angel baby dumping his plate and throwing the unwanted (green peas) bits onto the floor so that Penny would eat it all up for him. Real cute.

Y’all to be real, ever since Corey started his preschool twice a week, we’ve noticed a huge change in his… let’s just say behavior. We’ve had tantrums, screaming, hitting (people and objects), yelling, “No!”, time outs, and well… you get the idea. I don’t know if he’s picking this up at school, but it is NOT my favorite thing.

Have y’all experienced this with your kiddos? Corey used to have bouts of rough times, but this is getting pretty consistent. I’m hoping this is a short-lived phase. Mama’s running out of wine.


WHY DO I EVEN GO INTO TARGET!?!?!? I know what’s going to happen… I’m going to buy a ton of stuff I don’t need but WANT SO FREAKING BADLY! Guhh. I definitely couldn’t pass up these two Sandra Boynton Halloween books. Way too darn cute. She’s got the BEST books for babies and toddlers.

No holiday or season can be complete without a themed wine glass. Just sayin’. Thanks to my bestie for this sweet birthday gift – she knows the way to my heart. (PS – definitely poured this glass immediately following the above mentioned food throwing.)

You gotta love a good ole comfy dress that you can throw on while rangling the toddler and slopping on some make up. This one is a cheap find (about $25) and is fitted through the arms and chest, but flowy at the waist and legs. I don’t know why, but I love when a dress is comfy + still attractive. It’s really easy for these kinds of dresses to quickly turn towards a Mumu-esque situation.

So y’all know I love me some Crock Pot Wednesday. I also love me some freezer-friendly situations. I also reallllly like easy but still yummy weeknight meals. This shredded chicken covers all my loving bases.

It’s super simple and gives you healthy, cooked, shredded chicken that’s ready when you are.

I just grab a few boneless, skinless chicken breasts (the big ones, not the chicken tender size) + 2 cups of chicken stock. Turn the Crock Pot on high, throw everything in, and cook for about 4 hours or until the chicken shreds easily. You could also leave it on low for about 8-10 hours depending on how much chicken you’ve got. Just make sure the chicken is almost totally covered with stock.

Crock Pot Shredded Chicken

3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cups chick stock

Place the chicken in the bottom of a Crock Pot. Cover with chicken stock. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low 8-10) until chicken shreds easily with a fork.

Remove chicken from Crock Pot and shred. Store in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to 3 months.
