Greek Shredded Chicken

I’m all about quick and easy recipes I can throw in the slow cooker before work or in the Instant Pot after. As much as I wanted this Greek Shredded Chicken to be one you can spur of the moment decide to make, I’ve found marinating the chicken overnight is a MUST. Dairy tenderizes meat so well so DO NOT skip this step.

My kids have been requesting this chicken in their quesadillas for 2 weeks now as I’ve been testing this recipe out. I must admit, it’s awesome in quesadillas. I love adding a little extra Greek yogurt in mine as well.
