Chicken Soft Tacos


These Chicken Soft Tacos are another entry to the annals of "My Crock Pot Once Again Saved My Life". "Overly dramatic?" you say? Perhaps I overly dramatize a titch, but I can't stress enough how much I love my crock pot. I love being able to put dinner in it in the morning, and have dinner ready and the kitchen entirely cleaned up in the evening. This recipe is easy even for a crock pot and tasty enough to serve to company. Enjoy!

Yum!! Crockpot tacos are a-okay in my book. Less time in the kitchen means more time to do other things. ;-D

Hi, Joie!!! So happy to 'read' you again! This is an awesome recipe - we love tacos and I can imagine how tender the chicken comes out for this. I used my crock pot last weekend and now don't want to put it away . . . !
