Greek Shredded Chicken

Jump to recipe

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.

    Have you ever frozen the leftover chicken after it’s cooked?

      All the time. Put in an airtight bag and it will last for several months in the freezer.

    Do you put the shredded chicken back in the liquid and mix with the Greek yogurt & Cream cheese? Or just dump the liquid, and mix the shredded chicken with Greek yogurt & cream cheese?

      No, I don’t add it back in with ALL the liquid. I do like to reserve some of it for the chicken to soak up though. I’d estimate about 1/4 – 1/2 cup.

      I kept the chicken in the crockpot and just shredded it all up with the juices. It was DELICIOUS!!! I also used boneless skinless thighs because that’s what I had on hand.
