Shredded Chicken Roast and Carrots – WLS Recipe

 

Shredded Chicken Roast and Carrots

 

love roast and carrots…but specifically the carrots and onions. This meal is a play on the same idea only using chicken for a change of pace. It provides a different flavor yet the same soft and hearty experience with the meat and veggies.

I put this in the slow cooker before we set out for a busy Saturday and so glad I did when we walked in the door dog tired and super hungry. We tossed off our shoes, filled our bowls and were eating within minutes of arriving home. I may have complimented myself a few times for being so smart to think ahead ;-)

If you like a little heat in your meal, be generous with some hot sauce and it will almost resemble a buffalo chicken dish.
