Recipe: Crock-Pot Taco Shredded Chicken – Only 3 Ingredients!

Sep 9

You know I’m all about simplicity. Recipes fall into that category too!
Usually, when we have taco night, I’d brown some organic, low-fat beef. But lately I’ve been making a delicious shredded chicken taco meat in the crock-pot. It’s so easy and delicious! Really, you can use this shredded chicken in more than tacos. Think burritos, taco salad and more.
Another reason to love this healthier taco option? It only requires 3 ingredients – organic chicken breasts, taco seasoning (I used an organic option) and chicken broth (I went organic here too). That’s it!

To make, place the chicken breasts inside the crock-pot…OH, did I mention you can pop the chicken breasts in frozen? I do that all the time!…

Mix the broth with the taco seasoning…

Hot, mild or even low-sodium – recipe will turn out perfectly.

Pour the mixture over the chicken…

Cook on low for 6 hours…

When the chicken is done…

Set the crock-pot to warm and shred the chicken, using 2 forks…

This is exactly why you need all of that liquid…it makes a wonderfully flavored sauce for the chicken tacos! As always, feel free to take this recipe and make it your own by adding anything else you like in your taco meat. I keep it simple to cater to all the tastebuds in the house.

We love a mix of soft and hard taco shells along with lots of toppings (black beans are also on our menu, but not pictured)…

Last week on taco night, we also tried a new recipe – jasmine rice fragranced with lime juice and fresh cilantro. It was pretty good and I’ll share the recipe later this week…

What’s taco night without a margarita?


Here is the recipe printable. Enjoy!

    I have been making chicken taco meat exactly like this for years. It is good stuff. Now I make it with my home-blended fresh taco seasoning.

    • hi dina!

      wow, homemade taco seasoning – sounds awesome! and a great idea because i do worry about how much salt (and other things) are in the little packets i tend to grab. good idea!!!
