Crock Pot Shredded Chicken Nachos image

I found this recipe on This is a super, easy crock-pot meal. I was worried that the chicken would come out dry, so I altered the recipe by adding some chicken stock to it. I think that left the chicken moist, instead of dried out. I really hope you enjoy this recipe.
