It would seem appropriate to celebrate such a feat with a cake, cupcakes, or some sort of dessert. But no, instead we shall celebrate with a slow cooker chicken recipe. Not as exciting, but easier and healthier too.

You can use either frozen or raw chicken breasts for this recipe. I used frozen, as you’ll be able to see in the photos to follow.

Either place lettuce leaves on a plate and place a mound of quinoa or rice on top, then scoop the shredded chicken on top of the quinoa or use the lettuce to make a wrap and serve with the quinoa and chicken inside.

Whichever way you serve it, garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
