Crockpot Chicken Tacos

I’ve decided that it’s kind of pathetic that I’m a grown-up and I can’t cook.  Time to rectify that!  One of my goals for January is to cook at least one meal a week.  First up was KA Chicken Tacos.  The recipe is from one of the moms in my online moms group and they all rave about it.

The last time I got a wild hair up my butt and decided to learn to cook, I made use of the crock pot.  Long time readers will remember that it was a disaster of epic proportions.  Luckily I have a somewhat selective memory when it comes to kitchen disasters.

So this recipe is super easy.You need 3 chicken breasts, HEB pico, *chicken* taco seasoning, 1/4 cup of olive oil, and 1/4 cup of water.

Sprinkle the seasoning packet in the bottom of the crockpot.  By the way, seasoning packets are not kept by the spices in HEB.  I may or may not have spent 20 minutes examining every single spice in HEB looking for it before asking for help.

Set the chicken on top of that.  The recipe called for frozen, but mine was fresh and it worked just fine.

Dump the container of pico on top of that.  Apparently you can use rotel if you like, but we avoid canned food as much as possible.

Add the olive oil and water and cook on low for 4-6 hours.  I think I actually cooked it for 7 and it was still fine.  I love how forgiving the crockpot is.

I didn’t think that there was nearly enough liquid, but it was perfect.  When you think it’s done, shred the chicken and let it cook for 30 more minutes.

That’s it!  How easy was that.

I served it with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, and cheese.

I threw together some fruit, sautéed up some zucchini and dinner was served!

Kate declined to try the chicken opting for a strawberry taco instead.  #3yearoldsaregross  Michael gave it 2 thumbs up though.  In fact, he even ate it as leftovers the next day!  I’m calling this one a success.

  1. THANK YOU so much for writing a post about this so I can pin it! I have heard about these dang things for years and have never made them :) Now I will remedy that, but I will have to find a substitute pico since there is not an HEB near me!
