Freezing the shredded chicken in serving sized packets is perfect if you don’t need to eat this all at once. You can simply reheat the packets in the microwave and have taco meat whenever you feel like it. I don’t recommend defrosting any food in the slow cooker.
You’re also able to store this chicken mix in the fridge for up to about three days. It is also a pretty good filling for sandwiches or even tasty chicken wraps. Perfect if you want something tasty to eat for lunch the next day.
