There’s only one way to get that juicy shredded chicken made: with this recipe for crockpot chicken tacos! Easy, 2 ingredients, and delish!




  1. Place chicken inside the slow cooker and cover with salsa. Toss to combine and cover.
  2. Cook on high for 4 hours, on low for 6-8 hours, or until the chicken shreds easily with a fork.
  3. Shred the chicken in the slow cooker and toss with the remaining salsa and juices until everything is thoroughly combined.
  4. Serve immediately and store leftovers in an airtight container to use throughout your week.



*You can really use just about any cut of chicken for this recipe. For easy shredding though (so that you don’t have to mess with bones), I recommend boneless chicken breasts or thighs.

Cooking times will always vary by crockpots. I’ve found that newer crockpots cook faster since they tend to be hotter. If you can, set your cooking time and then set the crockpot to the warm setting.
