Slow-Cooked Mexican Chicken

I found this recipe on I think it will quickly become a family favorite, as it is simple, easy, and everyone liked it. We used the chicken for tacos (corn tortillas for myself and flour for the family), topping them with shredded lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream, avocados, and lime juice. also suggests using the chicken in enchiladas or on salads.


1.5 – 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (1.5 oz.) pkg taco seasoning mix (McCormick brand is gluten free)
1 c gluten free chicken broth or water
1 c salsa or picante sauce

  1. Place chicken in a slow-cooker and sprinkle taco seasoning mix on top of chicken. Then, pour on chicken broth and picante sauce. No need to stir.
  2. Cover, and cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. After 8 hours, the chicken is so tender it usually falls apart with a fork. So, use forks to shred, or pull apart, the chicken. Stir it around and let it stay warm in the slow-cooker while you prepare the rest of dinner.
