Even picky kids love taco night – whether you make them at home or pick them up to go. This simple slow-cooker chicken recipe will yield enough meat for 10-12 tacos, quesadillas, burritos, or even a Mexican-style chicken soup, if you’re so inclined.

Ingredients:
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of salsa
1 envelope of taco seasoning

Directions:
Place chicken breasts in slow cooker, add salsa and taco seasoning. Stir.

Set the cooker to low heat and let simmer for 6-8 hours. The chicken will become very tender and be ready when you can shred it easily with a fork.

Prepare however you wish! We like to use large flour tortillas, sour cream, cheese and lettuce to make tacos in my house, but I have also prepared some delicious chicken quesadillas with the leftover chicken meat.
