Recipe Notes

Shredding Chicken with Mixer:

An easy way to shred warm, moist chicken breasts is to use your hand or stand mixer.  I use my KitchenAid Hand Mixer with the turbo beaters (regular mixing beaters) or my KitchenAid Stand Mixer with the flat beater.  Start on low speed.

Toasted Baguette Slices: (Crostini):

I serve with toasted baguette slices that I drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake them at 375 degrees  on a baking sheet 5-7 minutes on each side.

Slow Cooker Directions:

You can cook in a slow cooker!  Cook on LOW for 2-3 hours or until hot and melty.
