STEP 2: 
Shred
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low 6-8 hours. Chicken is done when the meat falls apart easily. Remove thighs from slow cooker. Shred the meat and discard the bones. Place the meat back into the slow cooker with the juices to keep warm.
TIP Show/Hide
Make healthy substitutions by topping with Greek-style yogurt instead sour cream or replacing hard taco shell with a lettuce leaf wrap.

If you don't have a slow cooker, use a Dutch oven and bake at 300F for 2 to 3 hours until the chicken shreds easily.
