Ingredients: 6 servings
6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 cup chicken bone broth (homemade or store-bought)
1 (8 ounces) package cream cheese (softened)
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp ground black pepper
Fresh herbs of your choice such as thyme to garnish our dish
melted unsalted butter for drizzling (maybe vegan butter or ghee if preferred)
Preparation: 5 minutes prep time – crockpot cooking time 6 hrs
Place your 6 boneless chicken thighs in a 4-quart crockpot or slow cooker.
Tip: Lay your chicken thighs evenly in the crockpot or slow cooker but even cooking, even when seasoning them.
Using a blender, combine your chicken broth, softened cream cheese, poultry seasoning, and black pepper and mix until smooth.
Add your blended mixture to your crockpot or slow cooker and cover.
Cook your chicken on low for about 6 hours or until you see your chicken start to fall apart and can be shredded easily.
Transfer your chicken to a plate and using two forks shred your chicken until all done and put back in the gravy sauce.
Check if the chicken needs any salt, and add if desired.
Tip: An easier way to shred your chicken is to use a hand electric mixer. It works wonders!
