the easiest chicken tacos you'll ever make

easy chicken tacos

So you already know that I don't cook. Not only because I suck at it but also because I just don't like it (thank God for this guy). But eating- now that's something I love. So when I find something that's super easy to make and tastes super yummy too, I'm all over it.

Enter: crockpot. I thought this thing would be my savior. Everyone told me how easy it is to use and that there's no way that you can screw up a crock pot recipe. Well ladies and gentleman, there is a way. I've tried out a few different recipes with it but this is the only one that we actually love!

RECIPE:

Ingredients --
+ 3 tablespoons taco seasoning (I've used several different brands)
+ 1 cup chicken broth
+ 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb.)

Directions --
+ Dissolve taco seasoning into chicken broth
+ Place chicken breasts in crock pot and pour chicken broth mixture over them
+ Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. I like to shred the chicken in the pot after 7 hours and then let the shredded chicken sit for the extra hour to soak up the juices.

And voila. We use it for tacos, nachos, quesadillas.. pretty much any Mexican dish. Enjoy!

Oh my goodness, how yummy! I love me some Mexican chicken :) I'd be tempted to triple the recipe, get lots and lots of shredded chicken, and use it all week long on tacos, sandwiches, nachos, everything!

Thanks for sharing, Jessica :)

That is so easy! I have a crockpot and have only busted it out a couple of times but this is so easy and I love Mexican!

I'm not too big on cooking either! My husband is the chef. I so wished I liked it but I just don't. These look really good. I really need to get into crock pot cooking a lot more since I don't like being in the kitchen. We have one but never use it.

I do not cook. I'm lucky hubs and I have survived this long considering my lack of cooking skills. But this looks so easy! I must try these tacos! Thanks for sharing :)

I usually boil the chicken, shred, and then season, but this makes so much more sense! Thanks!
