Class Night Crock Pot Chicken Tacos

I do Krav Maga class 2 nights a week, so I’m always making recipes that can either go in the crock pot before I leave for class, or in a casserole that I can assign to the hubby or the kids to put in the oven while I’m gone. I forgot we were off for the holiday this week, but decided to make this one anyway cause everyone in my family loves taco night. I serve everything buffet style so everyone can make theirs how they like best. If you’re saving carbs, eat a salad instead of a tortilla or a shell. If you’re saving fats, go easy on the cheese and avocado and skip the sour cream.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • ½ White Onion Chopped
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • ½ pack of Taco Seasoning or your favorite taco spices (I like Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Cumin, Salt and Black Pepper)
  • ½ to 1 Cup Water

Optional to Serve:

  • Small Flour Tortillas, Taco Shells or Tortilla Chips
  • Tomatoes
  • Lettuce
  • Green or Red Onion
  • Avocado
  • Shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa or Hot Sauce

Steps:

Place chicken breasts in crock pot. It’s fine if they are still frozen. Add chopped onion and garlic. Add taco spices and about ½ cup water. Cook on low until chicken is fully cooked, about 3 hours. Shred with 2 forks and serve with optional ingredients.

I used frozen chicken and added about 1 Cup of Water and it was too watery when it was done
Buffet Style, save dishes by serving from the cutting board if you’re not having company…

Nutrition Facts:

This is based on the plate I made for myself. Your facts will differ depending on the size of the tortillas and what you add to them. I had 2 fajita (small) sized tortillas with ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1 chicken breast, iceberg lettuce, 2 cherry tomatoes, ¼ of an avocado, a few diced red onions and Cholula hot sauce.
