Secure the lid, place your crock pot on the low setting, and allow it to cook for 8 hours.
Remove chicken from crock pot and place on a cutting board. Use two forks to shred the meat and place meat back into the crock pot (discarding any bones if using bone-in chicken). For best results, allow chili to sit another 15 minutes (or even overnight) to allow chicken to absorb more flavor.
Serve chili with grated cheese, fresh cilantro, chives, and your other favorite chili toppings.
