Two Step Shredded Chicken

6 Sep

Let’s breeze through the workout today so I can get to my newest and easiest chicken recipe.

Today’s workout concentrated on my arms.

I did this workout 3x around and used two 10 lb dumb bells for the bicep curls.  Circuit workouts really are the best workouts for me.  Time flies and your body never gets used to the same exercise for to long.  While I enjoy running because the atmosphere changes, being in one part of the gym for to long is boring.  I have been known to run from room to room using different machines and weights to get the workout I’m challenged by that day in. I’m happy to supply people with the laughter as they watch 🙂

When I got back to the locker room, I sneezed and felt a huge pinch in my abs from those tummy tucks (I did mine like mountain climbers, I think they are about the same).  Needless to say, I will be incorporating more ab routines stat!

Two Step Shredded Chicken

One of my favorite “go to” recipes to have on hand for the week is shredded chicken.  It’s great to add to soup, salads or eat plain on its own with a little BBQ or dressing.

I was thrilled to learn a quick crock pot recipe so I can make the chicken one day and have it on hand for lunches and dinners the following two days for Ed and I.

Ingredients

  • Boneless Chicken Breasts
  • Chicken Broth

That’s it.

Add the chicken breasts to the crock pot (mine were still a little bit on the frozen side, no big deal) and submerge in the chicken broth (I used two cans of low sodium chicken broth).

Submerge the chicken.

I didn’t want to open a whole additional can of chicken broth, so I added a small amount of water to cover the chicken completely.

Set on Low  for 6-8 hours and walk away.

Almost complete.

Once cooked, remove from the crock pot and let cool.

Once cool, shred using two forks.

Enjoy as is with a side of veggies or potatoes or save to add to your lunch salad or soup the next day.

For lunch today, I ate my chicken with a splash of Wegman’s Organic BBQ with raw red peppers, grapes and yogurt on the side.

I’ve been tapping into my inner Robin Miller and I have a new recipe to try with the remaining chicken that we didn’t finish from dinner last night and lunch today with a healthy twist.

What’s your favorite “go to” meal?
