I threw about 7 pounds into the crock pot with about 1/2 cup water, garlic salt and pepper on low overnight for about 10 hours. I shredded all of it, set aside two cups for chicken divan for dinner tonight and mixed the rest with BBQ sauce for chicken burgers sometime when we have a crowd over. With graduation and the new baby coming soon I figure that will be really easy to serve if we need to.
We bagged up another about 15 pounds in 2-4 pound portions for ease of thawing. I made a huge list of meals that I want to make eventually when I have all the ingredients on hand with the chicken such as: coq au vin, chicken parmesan, chicken quesadillas, chicken fijitas, chicken chili, homemade chicken taquitos and chicken and biscuits. Yum I'm getting hungry.
Here's what I've actually made and put in the freezer since yesterday... man not sleeping well sure gives you plenty of time to plan.

Oh I forgot to mention that I also made taco meat and pulled homemade refried beans out of the freezer so the family can have tacos the night I stay at the hospital... man I am so ready for this baby to come.
