Instructions

Cook on high for 2 hours 30 minutes (or low for 5 hours) or until chicken is fork tender. Transfer chicken to a cutting board, shred using two forks then return to cooker.
  2. Preheat an oven grill on high. Spread tortilla chips over a large baking tray. Spoon chicken mixture evenly over chips and sprinkle with cheese. Grill for 1 minute or until cheese is melted.

Notes

The slow-cooked chicken is freezer friendly. Simply transfer any leftover chicken mixture to a reusable container, cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight and reheat in a saucepan over low heat on the stovetop until thoroughly heated.
