Cooking Directions for Single Meal

  1. Place the chicken breasts in the base of the slow cooker. Whisk together honey, Dijon mustard and vinegar in a small bowl and pour over chicken breasts.
  2. Set the slow cooker on low and cook for 8 hours.
  3. Note: if your slow cooker “runs hot” and has dried out meat in the past, you might want to add 1/2 to 1 cup of water or chicken stock to keep the inside of the slow cooker humid and prevent the meat from drying out.)
  4. Once cooked, use 2 forks to shred the chicken before serving on buns with slice of cheese.
  5. Serve Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Shredded Chicken Sandwiches with veggies.

Freezeasy Meal Prep Directions

  1. Whisk together 1/2 cup honey, 6 Tbsp Dijon mustard and 2 tsp vinegar.

To each gallon-size plastic freezer baggie, add the following ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • Half of the prepared marinade into each bag

Remove as much air as possible and seal. Add label to baggie and freeze.

Freeze & Thaw Instructions

Put baggie in the freezer and freeze up to 6 months in fridge freezer or 12 months in a deep freezer. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or a warm bowl of water for about 20 minutes, before transferring to the slow cooker and cooking on low for 8 hours.

Reheating Instructions

Special notes

The chicken can also be cooked on the grill and served in large pieces instead of shredded for the sandwiches. The chicken could also be cooked in a saucepan or Dutch oven and then shredded. Cook for about 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Also, if you prefer darker meat, you can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs in place of the chicken breasts.

Dairy-Free Modifications

Omit the Provolone cheese.

Gluten-Free Modifications

Use gluten-free buns or large pieces of lettuce to make lettuce wrapped chicken sandwiches. You could also serve the shredded chicken over rice.
