Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Chicken is done when it can easily be shredded with a fork.
Shred chicken, with 2 forks, directly in the slow cooker. Then give it a good stir to get all the juices combined.

Nutritional information is for the shredded chicken only. Any toppings need to be calculated and added separately.
Make sure to use a salsa with no added sugar. I love Pace Picante!
If you need to up your fats for the day, stir in 1-2 cups of shredded cheese to the shredded chicken. Let it cook on low for 10 minutes until it's nice and cheesy. Make sure to recalculate your nutritional facts!
I love to double this recipe! Freeze half for later use or use it later in the week for a different recipe.
