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.
Directions:
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!
