Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Hubby got a new job (congrats Hubby!) and has been working a lot more to wrap up his old job and get the ball rolling with his new one. Because of that, I’ve been using the crockpot a lot more than usual. I’ve had this recipe saved for a while. Boy do we wish we had tried it before. The chicken is perfectly spiced and shreds apart so easily.

I served this chicken with some whole wheat tortillas, red onion, red bell peppers, and avocados.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Ingredients:

2 1/2 Tbsp of homemade taco seasoning mix
15 oz low sodiumchicken broth
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes and liquid
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Your favorite taco fixins

Directions:

In a large bowl or measuring cup pour the chicken broth in, and use a fork to whisk in the taco seasoning mixture.

Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

Open the diced tomato can and pour all contents over the bottom of the slow cooker.

Lay the chicken breasts on top of the tomatoes and pour the broth/seasoning over that.

Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours- chicken should fork apart easily.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked chicken to a large bowl and use 2 forks to shred it up.

Use the slotted spoon to get all the diced tomatoes out of the slow cooker and add to the shredded chicken. Then grab a large cereal spoon and add about 4-6 spoon fulls of the liquid from the slow cooker to the shredded chicken bowl and stir it all up!

    Both your cranberry recipes look great. I am hoping Santa brings me a new crockpot for Christmas as my previous one was nuclear. This recipe looks so easy. I am not a pie fan so am thinking the cranberry apple dessert would be nice for hubby and I for Thanksgiving. Thank you for sharing!

    I make this every year for Christmas dinner 😀 We always go out for a fancy Christmas Eve dinner, and then we have a huge fancy Christmas Breakfast… by the time Christmas dinner comes around we are wiped out and not really in the mood to cook. This recipe is perfect because I can throw it all in the crock pot on Christmas Eve morning and pop in in the fridge. Then on Christmas day I put it on low and put wild rice in the rice cooker. My family always looks forward to it and we just love how delicious it is. I really wanted to let you know that this has been a tradition for us for about 3-4 years!! Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!!
