Taco nights just got easier!  These Crockpot Chicken Tacos are such a snap to put together and always come out amazing!

I've made these Crockpot Chicken Tacos so many times! These are the most delicious tacos and SUPER easy to make!

Shredded Chicken

I have to tell you that this is one of those recipes that my whole family truly loves!  I use low sodium tomatoes and homemade taco seasoning to control the salt in this recipe.  While the ingredients call for boneless chicken breasts,  you can certainly use bone in chicken as well (just make sure it’s skinless).  Once shredded, this freezes perfectly making for a super fast weeknight dinner!

I’ve used this for making chicken tacos, chicken salads and even spicy chicken pizzas!  Pile on your favorite toppings for a fabulous dinner loaded with flavor!

  1. This was very good – Super easy to prepare (just what I needed) I also used a taco seasoning recipe. The one the author provided is similar to one I’ve been using for years so I tweaked it a bit (added paprika).
    The only disappointment was of my own making. I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chili’s. These are generally smaller than a can of diced tomatoes by about 5 oz so I used 2 cans and foolishly forgot about the extra liquid. Thus it was a bit wetter than I like it. That said the results were still so good I consider it a learning experience.
    This is definitely going into the monthly meal rotation.

  2. I followed the recipe exactly. But then I broke down & put Cilantro in it. I just can’t eat tacos or enchiladas without the flavor & scent of Cilantro in it. It was very good & is on our menu – with Cilantro. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    1. I am so glad your family enjoyed the recipe! I like cilantro a lot too, I will have to add it to this the next time I make it!
