Sometimes it's hard to get lean chicken to be flavorful and tender. This is a great option for that. I like to marinate the chicken in advance and cook them in the crockpot on low. The possibilities are endless make into salad topping, tacos, burritos, nachos, pulled chicken sandwiches, and many more dishes. The best thing is that the meat is flavorful, low on sodium, and can last for a weeks worth of meals!!
