How to make it
- Combine all ingredients in a 4-5 quart crock pot and cook on low for about 8 hours.
- Remove chicken from "broth" and shred with two forks.
- Discard onion, bay leaves, and garlic cloves (if you can find them)
- Put shredded chicken back in crock pot for another 30 minutes or so- this step is optional, but I think it makes for more flavorful meat.
- Serve with taco fixings and enjoy!
