Two-Step Chicken Tacos

Share Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Email This Pin This

For those of you who haven't picked up on it yet, I'm a big fan of the crock pot. It's the easiest thing in the world to pop something in and come home to a cooked meal. This is by far the easiest recipe ever, but it's one of the most delicious. I have a weakness for mexican food, and doing this gives me just that after a long day of work.

Ingredients:
  • Frozen chicken breasts (1 per person, est.)
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • Cumin (in the spice section)
  • Corn and/or flour tortillas
  • Toppings (black beans, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, salsa, etc.)
Directions:
  • Place chicken, taco seasoning, and a few shakes of cumin into the crock pot. The ice on the chicken will melt, causing it to be juicy. It's better that way!
  • Let ingredients sit on "low" all day (about 7 hours is good for 3 or 4 chicken breasts, but the more you put in the longer it will take)
  • Shred chicken and place in tortillas. Top as desired!


What's especially nice about this meal is that it can be "finished" by whoever is home. If you have older kids, and you know you're going to be at work late, you can set the tortillas on the counter and instruct them to tear up the chicken and throw it on the the tortillas. It's no fuss, no nonsense.

It's no problem.

Love and simplicity,

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! I am a nurse who works nights, and I am always in search of EASY and healthy recipes. I got home this morning, threw some frozen, trimmed chicken in the crockpot, and woke up to a house that smelled amazing and delicious chicken! I shredded it and used it for homemade quesadillas. Thank you agan! :)
