Grandma’s Easy Chicken Tacos

Craving something Mexican, but don’t have a lot of time? These little guys are just what you are looking for! Start em’ in the morning, do a little prep work at dinner time, and that’s it. Taco-lishious goodness. πŸ˜‰ ❀

As the title suggests, this recipe was given to us by my grandma. She is really good at simplifying meals! Click below to download the printable version:

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. chicken breasts (you can use frozen)
  • 1 cup salsa (use whatever you like best!)
  • 1 package taco seasoning (or 2 TBSP of homemade seasoning)
  • 2 TBSP lime juice

Throw on your sombrero and let’s get going! πŸ™‚ Start by spraying a light layer of cooking oil on your crock-pot (you will thank yourself for this when you go to clean it…).

Toss in your chicken breasts…

Dump all the other ingredients on top…

Then throw the lid on, and let it cook! Cook on high for about 2-4 hours, or on low for 6-7 hours. You may have to cook it a bit longer if you used frozen breasts.

Before…

Once time’s up, carefully take the chicken out to rest on a plate or cutting board for 10 minutes.

After!

Shred those cookies up, and throw em’ back in the crock-pot on low for at least 20 minutes, or until you’re ready to eat.

When your tummy is leading you to the kitchen, take a strainer and set it on top of a mixing bowl. Then spoon the chicken into the strainer, and press to remove excess juice. (You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to, it just helps with drippy burrito problems… πŸ˜‰ )

Throw some in a shell with a bit of cheese, wrap it in a burrito, mix it in a salad, whatever you like best! ❀

And if you have extra time…I would highly recommend baking them like Jen from carlsbadcravings.com does with her chicken tacos here. And her chili cheese cream sauce to go on top is simply a MUST TRY! It’s simply delightful!

Happy fiesta everyone! πŸ™‚
