Best-EVER Chicken Tacos (In the CROCKPOT!!!!!)

You will never believe where I found this recipe…

Pinterest – of all places! Who knew?! (*wink*wink * :D)

The pin came from Chocolate Therapy… (Yes, even chocolate lovers love tacos! :D)


I’m a huge taco fan, in fact I love to make them once week.  I’m not kidding you when I say, after trying these tacos, I wouldn’t mind bumping these tacos to ONCE A DAY!!!! They were that good.  I’ve made them twice already, and in less than a week!!! All I can say is, I’m hooked!!! (more like addicted!!!) FO’ RILLZZZ!!!

Best of all they are lighter and better for you than beef tacos. (Okay, don’t look at all the cheese and sour cream on my tacos!!! It was strictly for picture-taking purposes!! ;))

Best-EVER Chicken Tacos

  • 5-6 frozen chicken breasts (You can do fresh chicken too.)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (I have a big container from Sam’s, so I measured out a ¼ cup of seasoning)
  • 1 jar (16 oz) salsa

Lay chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot. Mix salsa and taco seasoning together in a separate bowl, and spread over chicken. Cook on low for about 6 hrs, or on high for about 4 hrs. After cooking remove chicken from pot and shred. Spoon some of the juices back onto the chicken and mix together, and serve.

Mexican Rice

1½  cups minute rice
1½ cups of chicken juice
½ cup of water

Place all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high in the microwave for 5-7 minutes.. Stir and serve.

  1. Love anything that’s easy to cook in the crockpot so will have to try these. Anyone ever told you that you rock? Well, you do! Thought it was appropriate.;) One of these days we’ll meet up and can catch up on the latest again. Need to call soon!

  2. These chicken tacos look amazing! Thanks so much for linking up to “Strut Your Stuff Saturday.” We loved having you and hope you’ll join us again next week! -The Sisters

  3. I love chicken tacos, and these look so good. I will be making soon, and love I can throw them! in the crockpot! I heart Mexican food, so in to it right now. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration at Sunday’s Best!

  4. Hi, I have a quick question… about how many tacos would you say this recipe makes? I am making this for a big group and wanted to have the right amount. Thank you!

    • Elizabeth, the last time I made this I used a whole bag of frozen chicken breasts. We had enough for 8 people, and we still had leftovers, enough for several more tacos. Hope this helps!

  5. Great, thanks… what brand of frozen chicken breasts do you get and do you remember how many came in the bag?

    • I just get the Wal-Mart brand (Great Value) frozen chicken breast. There were about 6 or 7 breasts in the bag. You can also do fresh boneless, skinless chicken, but I always just use the frozen chicken, ’cause I think it’s easier. ;)
      Thanks for visiting! :D

  6. this is exactly whats for dinner today its in the crock pot as im commenting cant wait :) thanks for sharing love crock pot meals im a mom of 2 and expecting my 3rd so this was very easy looks and smells very good just added garlic to it but other then that i followed the directions gonna make them in taco bowls and on hard and soft tacos once again thanks!

  7. I make these all the time! They are amazing. This recipe remains in my arsenal of quick, amazing, affordable meals! The only alteration I make is adding a little sour cream to thicken the sauce and compliment the flavor.

    • If you start out with frozen chicken and are making a lot and are cooking it on low. If you have a delayed timer on your crock pot, that would be even better. You also might want to add a little water, maybe like a half cup. Hope this helps. :D
