Crockpot Chicken Tacos

  • 1 TBS garlic (chopped)
  • 1 TBS cumin
  • 1 TBS chili powder
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1/4 water or chicken broth (just enough to cover the chicken)
  • 1/2 cup salsa

For Tacos:

  • tortillas
  • rice
  • black beans
  • cheese
  • salsa
  • corn
  • cilantro
  • sour cream
  • tomatoes


  • Place raw chicken into the bottom of the slow cooker
  • Sprinkle garlic, cumin, chili powder, over the top of the chicken. Pour water or chicken broth over the top in the crock pot.
  • Cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-7, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Shred the chicken, using two forks, or a new trick I learned is to put your cooked chicken into your kitchen aid mixer with the flat beater and mix on low speed for about 10 seconds – you will have perfectly shredded chicken.
  • Mix salsa in with the chicken, and serve.
  • Place chicken in tortillas, and add your choice of toppings.
