Crockpot chicken tacos are a staple in our house. I make this at least once every other week. You can’t go wrong with 3 ingredients in the slow cooker and then it’s done for dinner. So easy! I love serving it with Copycat Chi-Chi’s Sweet Corn Cake and Spanish Rice

If you are familiar with Food Lovin’ Family, you know I am all about easy recipes. I know families are getting busier by the day so it’s nice to have go-to recipes that take no time at all and that everyone will be excited to eat. 

This shredded chicken is great to have on hand for the week. You can make it at the beginning of the week and use it for several meals.

HOW TO MAKE CROCKPOT CHICKEN TACOS

  • Ok, this is so simple I’m not even sure it’s a recipe but add your chicken, spices and favorite salsa to the slow cooker. 
  • Set to cook for 4-6 hours on low.

TIPS FOR SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TACOS

  • I like using boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe but you could also use thighs. 
  • Use two forks to shred chicken right in the slow cooker once it has finished cooking.

HOW TO SERVE CROCKPOT TACO CHICKEN

  • Hard and soft taco shells are always a winner. I stuff mine with chicken, cheese, sour cream and lettuce.
  • Quesadilla’s are also a great option. Lay a flour tortilla in a skillet. Top with shredded cheese, chicken and then another tortilla. Cook for 3-4 minutes on medium-high and then flip. 
  • Nachos are an easy way to serve this chicken. Lay tortilla chips on a baking sheet and top with chicken and cheese. Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. 
  • Burrito Bowls – Layer chicken on top of rice, black beans, corn, cheese and guacamole for a tasty meal. 
  • Wrapped in Lettuce – Wrap the shredded chicken in a piece of Romaine or Butter lettuce.
