Slow-Cooker Chicken Tacos


Chicken Tacos, a delicious weeknight meal, they are packed with flavor, easy, and a great way to feed a crowd at your next game day party or celebration!

This shredded chicken filling is super easy to make, thanks to our slow-cooker! The great thing is that you can combine everything, cover and set on low and go about your day. Then by the time dinner rolls around, you’ll have something tasty and flavorful to feed your family. Make a big batch and use the leftovers in other dishes!



What Ingredients do I need for Chicken Tacos?

Chicken: Breast halves or boneless skinless chicken thighs if you prefer are both great for tacos.

Vegetables: Onions and garlic. I use white onions but yellow works for this recipe.

Seasonings: Salt, Black Pepper, and taco seasonings. Here is a link to make a simple homemade taco seasoning 

Liquids: Water and Olive oil. Vegetable or canola oil can also be used for this recipe.

Tortilla: Corn tortillas or flour tortillas (6-inch size)





Cooking Chicken in the slow cooker

  • Place chicken in the slow cooker with all ingredients. 
  • When chicken is done, remove chicken from the slow cooker and allow to cool for 20 minutes. 
  • Leave liquids in the slow cooker.
  • With 2 forks, shred chicken, then place back in the slow cooker with seasoned liquids, turn settings to warm.


Warm corn tortillas in a microwave for 10 seconds, or in a cast-iron pan. 

Take a couple of tablespoons of warm shredded chicken and place in a warm tortilla, and load with your favorite toppings.
