Chicken for Tacos, Taco Salads, and Stuffed Burritos

This is a slow cooker recipe! Easily changed based on your needs.

chicken breasts (frozen or fresh, however much you need)
diced tomatoes with no salt added, 1 can (or 2 if doing a full pot worth)
taco seasoning, 1 packet (or 2 if doing a full pot)

Throw chicken (no need to cut it up) into the slow cooker. Combine taco seasoning with diced tomatoes. Pour on top of chicken. Cook on low all day or on high for about 3 hours (depends on how much chicken you have). Right before dinner, remove chicken. Use two forks to shred the chicken. Throw back into slow cooker and stir well.
