Electric Presser Cooker Shredded Chicken

Posted on

This is my favorite Kitchen item hands down!  Yes I love my Kitchen aid but  don’t use it that often and yes I love my crock pot but can never remember to  start and it takes so long.  Sometimes I forget to defrost my meat for dinner,  ok I always forget, and with the presser cooker it does not matter.  You can do  this in the crock pot also it just won’t be as fast.

My daughter loves this chicken and has it in her lunch everyday of the school year.  I was buying turkey or chicken lunch meat and the chicken cooked chunks for her lunch last year.  My daughter asked me not to buy the cooked chicken anymore she said it was not very good.  Lets face it I would have to agree, so I was trying to come up with another idea.  In the mean time I had made the BBQ chicken in the crock pot that just falls apart so thought I would give just shredded chicken a try.  It was such a great success that we almost never buy lunch meat anymore and never the cooked chicken  her favorite lunches are spinach salads with chicken, chicken wraps, and chicken pasta salad.  I can’t believe how much it saves us too with was just an added bonus to getting a better tasting lunch.  I have also stopped buying canned chicken for chicken salad, casseroles, chicken and dumplings………  (Oh and did I say it freezes GREAT!)

So I was spending $8-12 a week for lunch meat and maybe a can of chicken ever few weeks.
A large bag of chicken runs 6.99 and when on sale 4.99 Chicken broth less than $2.
So one month of lunch meat ranged from $32.00-48.00
One month of shredded chicken $7.00-9.00 (and I have an extra weeks of lunches or casserole serving)

You need:

  • Bag of frozen chicken
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • salt and pepper
  1. Place whole bag of frozen chicken in Presser cooker.
  2. add chicken broth and salt and pepper
  3. Set cooker for 30 minuets
  4. When done I  break it apart with a fork.  (It’s impossible to keep together is so juicy and falling apart.)

I sometimes use food saver bags and other times just freezer bags on the meat I do not need for the week.

Hi! I am Danielle Interior designer turned stay at home mother of 3 wonderful kids. I love to do crafts, projects, parties, and photography. With this being said I am a not a pro by any means and have had many many failed attempts. Some funny and some just plain ugly:) I do not care for cooking and house work. My goal is to find a better, faster, more organized way to just get it done so I can spend time with the ones. This is where Pinterest has come into my life. Pinterest and I have a love/hate relationship. I have spent the better part of a day looking up great ideas and never putting them to use. What a waste of time... or is it? Sometimes I find something that rocks and I try it and the world is a better place:) But the worst is when I try something and it’s a big bust. A how did that ever pass for working, did they even read the steps they were giving, or do you think they get a laugh out of my attempt. Many friends have told me that I need to post the bad ones so they don’t bother and let them know the good pins so they can give them a try. So here goes!
