Let it rest in the fridge for at least 8 hours. For most of us, the waiting is the hardest part. While you can skip this step, the texture will not have had a chance to completely firm up. After letting it come to room temperature, I started shredding into chunks popped it in the fridge directly in the slow cooker with broth. To finish you can pan sear, grill, sauté, fry, add to a casserole, the possibilities are endless. Happy cooking!
