Crockpot Chicken Tacos (with Pico de Gallo)

These are the VERY best tacos I have ever had! EVER!!!!!!

Recipe Courtesy: Cafemom Member MrsF29

What you need:
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (chicken or regular)
  • 3 frozen chicken breasts (I used thawed chicken tenderloins)
  • Pico de Gallo (recipe follows)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Tortillas
  • Toppings: cheese, sour cream, etc.
Pour seasoning on the bottom of crockpot.

Place chicken over seasoning.

Pour fresh pico de gallo over the top of chicken.

Pour oil and water over the top - DON'T STIR! Simmer on low for 4 to 6 hours. You can flip halfway through, if desired. Shred and serve with favorite taco toppings. Mine was really liquidy, so I had to strain it on my 2nd taco.

    I have checked out several of your recipes now, and they all seem to be budget conscious and simple. I love that! And I am thinking about working my grocery list around a few of these recipes. Thanks for sharing!

    I really appreciate that :) I try to spend the least amount of money I can on groceries and I find that planning meals and making from scratch as much as possible is both less expensive and more healthy! I'm glad to share recipes!
