chicken tacosWhen I say these slow cooker chicken tacos are easy to throw together, I mean EASY. They are literally one of the very first meals I ever learned to cook in my high school years, and they were a weekly go to for us when we got married! Plus, this recipe can easily be used for more than just shredded chicken tacos. It works great for taco salads, tostadas or nachos as well!

I typically make a big batch and some of us will eat them as the traditional chicken tacos while the others will take a taco salad approach. If I am trying to be especially healthy then I eat mine rolled in iceberg lettuce like a chicken lettuce taco! Honestly the possibilities are endless. One thing is for sure though, everybody loves this salsa chicken, even my pickiest eaters.

    I buy BIG BIG containers of Salsa and Taco seasoning. So is it like a 1/4 of taco seasoning in a packet and like a 650ml Jar of salsa?

      Honestly I am pretty approximate with this recipe! If you just sprinkle a bit of taco seasoning over the top (maybe two or three tablespoons) and then probably two cups ish of salsa. You just want to make sure all the chicken is coated! Hope that helps :)

    Yay!! Haili I am so glad you liked it! It is seriously one of my go-to recipes because it is so easy and it makes the chicken so tender. Mmm.

    I made these tonight. :) SO good! Thank you for the recipe! I used fresh chicken, and they were the strips. So I only had them in the crock pot for 3hrs on high. Still tasted perfection!
