Crockpot Chicken Tacos

A friend of mine on Twitter posted this simple recipe so I tried it with the chicken breasts I had in the fridge.

Easy peasy and something to make when you’re sick and tired of chicken breasts the plain old way… with a vegetable and a starch.

Throw all this in the crockpot early in the morning and then go do your thing, baby!


2 large chicken breasts

1- 16 ounce salsa (any kind, I used Old El Paso)

1- Taco seasoning package

No need to add water, except for maybe a dash to clean out the salsa jar…


Pour salsa and taco seasoning packet in crockpot and stir

Rinse chicken breasts, place on top of the salsa and cover

Turn on High for 4 hours or Low for 6-8 hours

When chicken is done, cut into strips or rip with a fork and a knife while still in crockpot

Put into taco-sized flour tortillas (or even hard taco shells) and top them off with:

Toppings I used: 

Lettuce, shredded

Cheddar Cheese

Black olives, sliced

Avocado, mashed

Tomatoes, chopped

Sour cream

Hot Sauce

… and anything else you might like on a taco!

I served mine with a side of Spanish Rice and Mexican Style Corn Bread! YUMMY!
