A refreshing meal with the shredded chicken served hot or cold is perfect for picnics, family reunions, work socials, or a family meal.  No need for a formal sit down when you are rushing to music lessons, sport activities or whatever fills your time away from home.  Easily served when you are ready for it.  Shredded chicken can be left to cook in a crock-pot while you work or are away from the home.  It easily shreds and can be stored for later use, or freeze to use at a later time.  Serve with Watermelon Salsa for an added sweet taste.
