I’m so excited to share with your the BEST crockpot Chicken tacos recipe that you can possibly imagine. No seriously… the best.

My husband was very skeptical since I only threw three ingredients into the crockpot, but boy was he surprised. He kept going on and on with how delicious this dinner was.

We also love street tacos made with tender beef and lime or our chicken ranch tacos for another easy and delicious recipe.

You could use this SAME chicken tacos crock pot recipe several different ways and have a different dinner. However, you are still using the same basic and delicious recipe.

To be honest, I was shocked too. We used this shredded chicken taco meat to make tacos, but you could eat it by itself, serve it over rice, use it to make quesadillas,  or even in wonton wrappers.

You will need a crockpot for 3 ingredient Chicken Tacos.

If you don’t have a crock pot yet, here are some nice ones on sale.  It’s great so that you can have it cook for the perfect amount of time.

There are some really good ones on sale right now. If you work all day, you may want to invest in a programmable crockpot.

They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready. Amazon has some on sale right now too.

I also really like this crockpot.  Now, it’s not programmable but it’s so handy!

It has the feature where you can lock the lid down. That feature is so nice for when you take meals to potlucks or need to transport the meal somewhere.

Now if you want to save yourself even more time then I really recommend these Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze.

Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.

How do you make shredded chicken tacos?

This is a simple recipe that will soon become a family favorite. It is tasty and delicious and so easy.

I use a hand mixer to shred the chicken faster. It is so easy and one of my best time saving kitchen tips!

If you are not shredding your chicken this way, you are missing out. It can be done in a fraction of the time by doing it by hand.

Plus, I love the texture of the chicken when you use the hand mixer. I have an entire post on how to shred with your mixer that you can check out.

If you don’t have a mixer, shredding with two forks works as well. It’s a great recipe!

You can freeze Crockpot Shredded Chicken Tacos!

This is a very easy freezer friendly recipe. Just toss the chicken breasts (uncooked) into a freezer bag.

Then add the salsa and taco seasoning. Freeze completely.

When you are ready to use, just place the entire ingredients from the bag into the crockpot. Add ¼ cup of water, and cook about the same amount of time for an even easier dinner idea.

Now you can also cook this like normal and then freeze it. I like to freeze them in cupcake pans and once frozen pop them out and place in the freezer bag.

Then you have an easy lunch idea and the chicken is frozen in individual servings.

This is such an easy dinner idea when you know you will have a really busy week.

You can also try Crockpot Chicken Tacos Rotel version.

Just use a can of rotel instead of a jar of salsa. It is a nice twist on the recipe and tasty if you want to try the recipe with a change.

Another tasty option is Crockpot Chicken tacos with cream cheese.

We love to add cream cheese to this tasty recipe. It creates a very creamy texture with the chicken and is so delicious.

  1. What brand of crock pot do you use? Is it an Instapot or a crock pot? Can you still buy crock pots? Also I sent a private message to your site awhile back asking the make of your can opener with the magnetic piece to lift lids.

  2. I have a bunch of different crock pots. My favorite right now is an Instant Pot Aura Slow Cooker. It’s a crock pot but the brand name is Instant pot. The can opener I love is a Pampered Chef can opener. Thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    My kids loved the chicken tacos. It was a great meal to have and ready when we got home from a busy day. Even the hubby enjoyed this recipe.

  4. 5 stars
    I fix this dish almost every week, it is just that good! The chicken always turns out very moist, not dryed out at all. It’s also super easy and not many ingredients, which is always a plus in my book!

  5. 5 stars
    The chicken came out absolutely delicious! It’s definitely easy to customize, if you like yours hot. We kept ours mild. The kids loved it!

  6. 5 stars
    Both of us loved this recipe! Neither of us had ever had “chicken tacos” before & now with this recipe, we have them a couple times a month!

  7. 5 stars
    Very tasty! Used 3 frozen chicken breasts, homemade taco seasoning and picante salsa – it took 4 hours on high. Also tried it with cream cheese and liked it both ways. Thanks for the recipe!

  8. They are so delicious but my chicken always turns out watery. Does anyone know why?

  9. Chicken releases different amounts of water when cooking it based on the size and type of chicken. I would reduce the amount of salsa that you add so that it’s not too watery for the next time or you can spoon off the excess liquid at the end of the cook time.

  10. This recipe is not only so easy it is delicious. I love that you can use your own favorite salsa. I adjusted the size of the recipe and made this for a graduation party. It was a hit and many

  11. 5 stars
    This is one of my daughters favorite recipes, she asks for it all of the time. Family favorite
