With school back in full swing families are busier than ever. Sometimes it can be hard to find the time, or the energy, to make healthy meals. For the next few weeks on our Midweek Meal feature we’ll be highlighting a few of our easy-to-prepare dinners for the whole family. We’d love to hear your suggestions!
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.
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar of salsa
1 envelope of taco seasoning
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.
