This Slow Cooker Taco Chicken is super easy and delicious. Just throw three ingredients into the slow cooker and walk away. Shred the chicken and enjoy it in a variety of ways!
This is another one of those dishes that I've made countless times, but have never taken the time to photograph. Usually we just dig in to dinner, and by the time I remember to take a picture, the natural light isn't very good anymore or the sun has set completely.
We make this taco chicken at least once a month. It's versatile (use it in tacos, burritos, etc.), requires almost no effort to prepare, and makes a lot of food. As a result, we get to enjoy leftovers at least once during the week. For me, this just adds to this chicken's appeal.
Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Taco Chicken

- 15.5 oz jar of salsa
- 1 oz packet taco seasoning
- Place all ingredients in a 4 quart slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours.

Just like the Pressure Cooker Carnitas that I shared last week, this shredded chicken is pretty versatile. Eat it in tacos, quesadillas, burritos, or alongside/atop some Cilantro Lime Rice. Do you! Do what feels right.
If you're looking for something a little spicier, but just as easy to throw together, take a look at this Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken. Super easy to make, and can also be used in a number of ways.
This is a fantastic quick recipe, thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you so much, Bertie!
I hope you know that you can shred the cooked chicken in a stand mixer. It takes about 30 seconds, maybe a minute. Plenty of videos online. This is an easy recipe. I used half a pkg of taco mix and that is enough for me. Taco salad, chicken tacos, tostados, flautas....lots of choices for using this chicken filling.
Glad you liked it! And yep, using the stand mixer is such a great way to shred up your chicken!
