This is the best recipe for a day that you just don't have the time to dedicate to a making a meal, like a Saturday. It's one that you simply have to throw your ingredients together, go off and enjoy your Saturday, and dinner will be ready when you're ready to eat.
I heard about this recipe from a colleague. You just need 3 ingredients and voila! It's a reliable recipe. I've made it a few times now and it's been great every time. My family love this recipe.
I usually start this one at about 11:00 am on a Saturday. First, I add about a tablespoon of olive oil in my slow-cooker. Then I threw in 6 chicken breasts. Then a small jar of salsa, usually President's Choice Extra Chunky Salsa and a package of taco seasoning (my go-to is Old El Paso). Then I put on the lid, start up the slow-cooker, usually setting it to cook for 4 hours, and I go about my business for the day. By about 3:00 pm, the meat for the tacos is ready. All I have to do is prep my toppings and dinner is served.
These tacos end up being a pretty fun meal, especially because everyone gets to make their own tacos how they like them. I usually put out some sour cream, salsa, grated old cheddar cheese, finely chopped cucumbers, chopped green and red peppers, chopped onions, and guacamole (home made).
Ingredients3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup of salsa (we used picante)
1 Tablespoons of Taco Seasoning (we used homemade)
- In a crockpot, place chicken breasts (frozen) in the bottom

- Shred the chicken and serve with your favorite taco toppings
Enjoy and TTFN,
