Sami's Crockpot Chicken Tacos

I mentioned before about reaching out to the neighbs, asking for recipes, and Sami was right on top of it, sending me this gem!  Sami is the first one on my neighborhood friends that I have told about KidEats.  I keep pep-talking myself about telling more but it's a bit nerve-wracking.  This is really a perfect recipe.  I think it would be fun to serve like Lauren's Carnitas, layered with rice, beans, and cheese, like a casserole.  Click below for recipe!

Sami's Crockpot Chicken Tacos
From Sami Valentine
3 Frozen Chicken Breasts
1 ½ cups Pico De Gallo, fresh salsa
1 Packet Chicken Taco Seasoning, or similar
¼ cup Olive Oil
¼ cup Water

Cover the bottom of the Crockpot with the Taco seasoning. Lay the frozen chicken on top of the seasoning and cover with the pico de gallo. Pour the water and olive oil over the top and cook on Low for 4-6 hours. 

Shred the chicken, mixing everything together.  Serve on tortillas with some cheese, with beans and rice or as a taco salad. 

Easy Black Beans and Rice
2 cups of cooked rice
1 can Black Beans, not drained
1 tsp of taco seasoning

Heat the beans and taco seasoning.  Stir in hot rice. Wrap in a tortilla with the chicken or eat on the side or under it in a bowl!


  1. I'm so glad that you guys enjoyed them! I've heard that this recipe also works really well as filling for chicken enchiladas.

    1. Sami, I made these tonight and we LOVED them. WP said "Mmmm... this is the best kid's meal." No lie.
