    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    We love shredded chicken...I will often make large batches of it and freeze in meal size portions. This makes chicken tacos, enchiladas and other favorite chicken meals all that much faster to get on the table. For this chicken, I used what I had on hand in the freezer. I dropped a package of chicken breasts and a package of chicken thighs into the slow cooker...a good mix of white and dark meat! Along with some lime juice, olive oil and big hunks of cilantro and bam...Seriously y'all...the cilantro flavor totally infused into the chicken as it cooked all day. Perfect for using in your favorite Mexican chicken dish. Also, I should add that I got a large batch of cilantro for just $0.29!
