Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chicken Ever! I batch cook approx 8 lbs of chicken at a time in my slow cooker with this seasoning. After it cools, I shred it and freeze it in quart bags. We pull it out and use it for casseroles, soups, burritos, nachos, etc. It is so flavorful, tender and juicy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Chicken I make this all the time its great for so many recipes, some of the time I use half to make shredded chicken and freeze the rest or I freeze it all, 2-3 cups per baggie, so when needed just pull one out and let it thaw, great flavor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky family loves it! I bought this from a local seller at a craft fair and figured I'd give it a shot. I'm always on the look out for bulk foods I can make for lunches and quick meals. I made it today and it was a huge hit with my increadibly picky family. My husband declared this is the best thing I've ever done in a slow cooker! My 8 year old declared it "so fricking good!" And lots of leftovers for lunches and quick dinners.
