Slow Cooker Shredded Salsa Chicken

Take a break from cooking dinner with Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken. Eat it alone, on cauliflower rice or as a taco for a delicious Sugar Free, Whole30 dinner option. 

Often, I get asked what I do for meals to keep up a Paleo lifestyle because it can be "so hard." The concept of Paleo can be intimidating for anyone, especially if you aren't used to cooking (which I wasn't), you eat microwaveable meals everyday for lunch (I did) or you happen to eat out for every meal (I see you Taco Bell!) If you ask me for input, one of the first recommendations I will make, for anyone, is to get a good slow cooker.

Is it OK to quote Shakespeare when I'm talking about my slow-cooker? Because if so, I'm about to go all, "how do I love thee? Let me count the ways." It will solve all of your problems, really! Alright, so maybe it won't find your missing  blue sock or magically tame that one annoying hair, but it will ease your mind. 

You say you aren't good at cooking? It's a one pot stop. Throw a bunch of ingredients in and watch magic happen. You don't want to cook every day? Ok, make dishes in bulk batches. You always eat microwaveable meals? Good! All of those leftovers have to be reheated somehow, right?

Besides the ease and convenience you can get from a slow cooker, if you are like me, you'll love the results. I've found that some of my favorite meals make use of it. This includes my 4 Herb Chicken, Nom Nom Paleo's Kalua Pig and this next recipe I have for you...Shredded Salsa Chicken!
