… and yes… I do suppose its “3 ingredients” if you count the meat.. I wasn’t counting the meat tho, since thats a given. :)

2 Ingredient – Chicken Taco’s

Ingredients

  • Chicken Broth
  • Taco Seasoning ( buy in a packet or make your own )
  • 1 pound chicken breast or tenderloins.

Instructions

  1. Mix together a few cups of chicken broth (Id say around 1 1/2 - 2 cups) with your packet of taco seasoning. Mix it all together.
  2. Place your chicken into a crockpot. I placed my chicken in FROZEN :) - since well, im never prepared enough to have it thawed.
  3. Pour the taco/chicken broth mixture over top of the chicken. It should cover majority of the chicken in the crockpot.
  4. Turn crockpot to high and cook for 4-5 hours, or cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Once meat is super tender, take the meat out. Place it into your blender to shred the meat (this is a great secret I learned last year, works so good.) Once meat is shredded, put it back into the crock pot to simmer until you are ready to serve it.
  6. To get the meat out you will want to use a straining spoon of some sort, so that your taco's are not super drippy. Top your taco's with toppings of choice. For photo purposes I did not include any toppings :) - but we personally love salsa and cheese here. Yum yum!! Enjoy.

My family at this up. Especially my boys. There was hardly anything left and the next day they wanted more.
I am not sure why but this taco recipe yielded a much moister meat. It must be because it cooks in the broth the entire time… either way, its a keeper for sure. It also felt like a very lean and healthy meal. If you were watching your calories I think this would be a great fit. Instead of serving your taco meat onto a tortilla as pictured, you could serve it on some romaine lettuce or even some quinoa chips. So many options.

  1. Bottom line… I like anything that I can throw in a crock pot and forget about. I still use the “foil inside of a bowl when draining meat grease” trick you blogged about. Maybe I will have to try the blender trick. :)

  2. HMMMMMMM, shredding meat in the blender? For real, huh?! This I will try because I never can shred like the pictures show =) I assume you just put alittle in at a time. And then maybe a food processer with a shredding tool? Thanks.

    1. You will love the mixer trick! I dont have a food processor but i tell you, putting tenderized meat into a blender with a hook type attachment (not the wisk) is the best kept secret of shredding meat :) – i threw an ENTIRE CHUCK ROAST I had slow cooked into a mixer and it shredded it so well. Let me know if you try it and how you like it :)
