What’s better than leaving home for the day only to return to a hearty home-cooked dinner? Not much. Especially after hours of working, running errands and chauffeuring the kiddos to and from activities. After leaving your slow cooker to simmer for 5-6 hours, all that’s left to do is shred the chicken, mix and ladle into individual bowls. Our tip? Serve with sweet pumpkin cornbread for a tasty fall-flavored finish.
