Taco Chicken

Leave a comment

I absolutely love the crock pot. And I can’t believe I’ve never posted this recipe since it is one of my go-tos. And it’s Whole30 appropriate (with one small variation). I’ve posted a reuse of this recipe since it’s good as is or to make a lot of other things – tacos, burritos, enchiladas, salad, soup – you can get creative! And since it’s a crock pot recipe it’s SO easy!

This week I’m using it for lunch – chicken “tacos” (with romaine lettuce as the shell) and taco salads. Top with whatever you want!

Crock Pot Taco Chicken


  • ~6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (can modify depending on the size)
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 jar salsa (16 oz)
  • 1/4 C or 1 packet taco seasoning*


  1. Place chicken breasts in bottom of the crock pot.
  2. Chop the green pepper and onion and put on top of the chicken.
  3. Mix the salsa and taco seasoning together and pour on top of the chicken and veggies.
  4. Cook on high 4-6 hours or low 6-8 hours.
  5. Shred chicken with a fork.


*I normally use Penzey’s original taco seasoning, but it is not Whole30 compliant, so I found a recipe for a homemade taco seasoning while doing Whole30. I went ahead and doubled the recipe and stored the leftover.

Homemade taco seasoning (from Whole New Mom)

  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. cumin
  • 2 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
