Super Easy Taco Chicken

7 Jun

I don’t do a lot of cooking, so you know if I have a recipe to share it must be good AND easy. I was given this recipe from someone I work with at the Y and it’s been passed from person to person for so long that no one really knows where it came from.

What I like the most about this one is that you’re free to make adjustments and substitutions and it’s impossible to mess it up. Oh, and it is SO good!

Easy Slow Cooker Taco Chicken:

What you will need:

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breast (enough for your family)
  • 1 envelope of taco seasoning
  • 1 jar of your favorite salsa


  • Place chicken in slow cooker
  • Top with taco seasoning
  • Add salsa
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3
  • Once cooked, shred chicken right in the slow cooker and stir


This is where it gets fun. Serve this dish to your liking. You can crunch up tortilla chips and serve over the chips. Wrap in a flour tortilla with some cheese and sour cream. Just put it in a bowl and enjoy. This dish is even great as a dip with your tortilla chips.

Other options come in with what you put in the slow cooker. Last night I added corn and kidney beans to it. Last week when I made taco chicken we had it with refried beans. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Try it out and let me know what you think. What fun variations did you try?
