Everyone who's a slow cooker fan knows how the slow cooker turns out tender shredded chicken, pork, or beef.  Where the fun comes is spicing up that tender meat with different combinations, and I love the sound of this Slow Cooker Tandoori Pulled Chicken from The Perfect Pantry that's perfectly seasoned with Indian spices.  The chicken can be served with Naan or other flatbread like Lydia shows in the photo, but if you're cutting down on carbs or just watching calories after the holidays, serve this on top of salad for a delicious low-carb and diet-friendly meal!

  • Boneless and skinless chicken thighs

  1. Thanks so much for featuring this recipe! It freezes well, so I like to keep small packets of the chicken in the freezer to top salads at a moment's notice.

  2. Lydia, that sounds like a good way to make sure you always have the makings for a healthy meal!
