Chicken Tacos

This is the easiest chicken taco recipe. It is my son, Nick's, favorite dinner. I throw the chicken in the crockpot frozen and cook on low for 6 hours -7 hours.

Makes 20 tacos ( 1 taco with 2 oz. meat, lettuce and tomatoes = 3 points +)

  • 40 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1/4 c. salsa
  • La Tortilla Factory whole wheat tortilla shells ( 6 ") or another low-carb whole wheat tortilla

Place chicken with taco seasoning and salsa in a crockpot. Cook on low for 6 or more hours until easily shreddable. Shred 30 minutes before serving. This will help absorb some of the juice. Serve using a slotted spoon.
Wrap tortillas in foil and heat in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
Top with lettuce and tomatoes. Add points for any additional toppings such as cheese or sour cream.


  1. cooking chicken in the crockpot this way is the BEST timesaver! My cooker is full of apples at the moment however :)

  2. oh yum those look tasty! :)

  3. Just curious what makes this 3 points?
    The meat, or the tortilla?
