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

I have to tell you that do 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!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos are SO easy to put together... perfect in taco shells, on salad or rice or even on pizza!

  1. This sounds great and easy! Would you mind sharing your homemade taco seasoning recipe? Thank you

  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.

    • 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!
