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!

    love your adaptations- and i agree, one-pot meals usually need more veggies!

      Not that this meal is in any way healthy, but at least bumping up the veggies (and the servings) reduces the amount of pure indulgence per serving…

    Love all the changes you made to this! And I agree- the more veggies, the merrier 🙂

    I love that idea to just throw extra veggies in. I always have some leftover unused veggies going bad in the fridge after I’ve used some for a recipe. The biscuits on this look amazing.

    This looks rich and satisfying. I love the idea of biscuits on top rather than pie crust. Cream cheese chive biscuits sound especially delicious!

      I definitely plan to make these biscuits again some time. They’d be delicious even without the creamy pot pie filling under them.

    I love the thought of throwing the extra veggies in, i think a lot of people are hesitant to do so. This looks so delicious and satisfying 🙂

      Yea when it comes to cooking, I figure there’s no harm in playing with recipes. Baking is another story…

    My boyfriend, who eats a good portion of the overall meals I cook plus leftovers, hates veggies. This is a problem, because I don’t like food going bad but I can’t eat it all myself. I love recipes like this because it’d probably be SO tasty, he’d hardly even notice the abundance of green. Or he’d pick the peas out. Who knows.

    • beantownbaker — March 26th, 2013 @ 8:16 pm

      I can’t imagine hating veggies… But I agree, I think he’d hardly notice the veggies in this. It’s that creamy and delicious.

    I love that you topped this off with biscuits instead of the traditional flaky crust!

    • beantownbaker — March 28th, 2013 @ 6:53 am

      Biscuits are always the right answer 😉
