Shredded Chicken Crock-pot Taco’s


For the past few weeks I have been taking part in the “Taco Tuesday” trend and I am obsessed! There are so many different ways to make taco’s!  And with all the recipes I have found on Pinterest there are many more Taco Tuesdays to go!

This week I moved Taco Tuesday to Thursday because my brother is coming home for the weekend.  I made Shredded Chicken Crockpot Taco’s from a recipe I found on Pinterest.  The recipe is courtesy of Paleo Perfectly.  You can click here to get the recipe or follow it below!


1.5-2 Pounds skinless chicken breast

1 cup chicken broth

1/3 cup salsa (your choice!)

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/8 tsp chile powder (or more if you like a little more heat)

1/4 tsp paprika

1.5 tsp cumin

pinch of salt and pepper to taste


Place all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.  Shred the chicken 1/2 hour before serving.  Place back in the crockpot with all of the juices to allow chicken to absorb more flavor!  Serve chicken with your favorite tortillas, taco shells, and toppings and enjoy!

It’s as simple as that!! This is a great recipe to put in the crockpot before leaving for work in the morning.  It is cheap, easy, and fun to eat! Also, if you have kids, it’s a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen, whether that be shredding the chicken, cutting up colorful veggies, and they are able to make their own taco’s!

Tonight I am going to the Cleveland Cavs vs Miami Heat game… aka the “We hate Lebron” game.  Can’t wait!! Have a great weekend all!
