I've found that cooking the chicken longer than 6 hours runs the risk of the it getting soft, so I switch it to the "Keep Warm" setting after that. Have I mentioned that I really hate mushy chicken? I'm sure it varies by crock pot, but this works for me.
I used a thawed 3 pound bag of chicken and it made enough to freeze half for another night. The leftovers would make fabulous quesadillas, burritos or taco salads as well.
Serve with 5 Minute Guacamole and White Queso.
