Shredded Mexican Chicken in the Crock-Pot

I always like to have some shredded chicken on hand for tacos, quesadillas, taco salad or Mexican lasagna.  Make this easy recipe in your crock-pot and freeze want you don't use for later ~ makes meal time so much faster!

Shredded Mexican Chicken

3 lbs. Boneless Chicken Breasts (about 6 large or 8 smaller breasts)
2 tsp. taco seasoning (I use Wildtree)
2 cups salsa

Spray the inside of your crock-pot with cooking spray.
Place your chicken breasts in the crock-pot and sprinkle with taco seasoning.
Pour salsa over the chicken breasts.
Cover crock-pot and cook on low for about 6 hours.
Shred the chicken with two forks and place back into the salsa.  Stir to combine.
Use immediately or freeze in Ziploc freezer bags.

  1. This looks and sounds really good! I haven't tried chicken yet in my crock pot {we are big chili people}, but I like the idea of being able to store what I don't use.

  2. I love easy recipes! Especially ones that involve a crock pot.

  3. This looks incredible, I would never guess it's only three ingredients. I love it!

  4. I am so going to try this!!! Thanks for the post. Yummy.

  5. Crock pot recipes are the best, aren't they? I make something very similar. My recipe uses chicken, salsa and french dressing, but no taco seasoning.

  6. I need to start cooking in the crock pot! This might be my start!

  7. I love my crock so much - is there anything it can't do? Ok, it can't wash dishes or fold laundry, but really....I use mine about once or twice a week. And this is such a good idea - taco salad time is just around the corner...

  8. I love this! Easy to make AND delicious-looking. :) I am bookmarking this one for sure!

    Thanks so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. :)

  9. Thank you for sharing! This sounds really good. Will be trying this on next week's menu!

  10. So, I did try this...and my family LOVED it!! My husband doesn't eat chips and had his on a shell. The rest of us ate it with blue corn chips, with a little bit of shredded sharp cheddar and Mexican Enchilado cheeses....and of course a bit of sour cream and chili garlic Chalula hot sauce (which i put on everything!) It is one of our new favorites! In fact, it's in the crock pot cooking right now! Thank you again so much for sharing!
