Slimming World friendly pulled chicken for your lunch box

29 Jan

Im here to share this simple way to make a tasty pulled chicken which is great to use in your pack up, pasta, sandwiches and much more.

You will need

  • Chicken Breasts all fat removed and skin.
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 1/ tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • boiling water
  • A pan with a good lid

I the pan, place 250ml of boiling water and add the stock, salt and pepper, and garlic powder. You want to bring the stock back to boil in the pan before we add the chicken. 

Once boiling you can add your chicken breasts. You want to boil them for a good 5-10 minutes on a high heat for 5-10 mins.

Once this time has passed, turn your heat down to low and leave to simmer for about 30 mins and leave the lid on.You will know when its ready as the pulled chicken will start to tear if you touch it with a wooden spoon. It will look something like this. in the picture below when its ready.If you only have a small amount of stock left then I find it best to leave this in the pan and begin tearing the chicken with 2 forks like pulled pork.

If you have alot of stock leftover then feel free to drain it. You can always add the stock back into the chicken after shredding if you want too.Allow to cool and use in whatever you would like to. This is free on extra easy slimming world.

Id love to see what you will use it for.

Some great ideas could be

  • Chicken, sweetcorn and mayo sandwich or wrap filler
  • Chicken pasta.
  • Toppings for pizza toast or pizza wraps
  • Snacking on in between meals

Let me know if you can find a great use for it.
