We are always on the hunt for super easy week night recipes that our whole family will love. In the summer, we grill out a lot, but on those days that our CURAGO family calendars are full, we need something that’s ready to put on the table when we walk in the door! Breaking out the crockpot usually seems synonymous with colder temps, but this simple 3 ingredient chicken taco recipe is easy to plan for and makes the perfect light summer time supper!
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 can 14.5oz can diced tomatoes and green chilies
- Trim and clean up chicken breasts and line them up across the bottom of your crockpot. (We spray our crockpot lightly with olive oil, or use a liner for easy cleanup.)
- In a separate bowl, combine taco seasoning and canned tomatoes. Whisk with a fork to blend well.
- Pour the mixture over the top of your chicken breasts and cover. Cook on low for 8 hours.
- Remove the cooked chicken and shred with a fork. Return shredded chicken to the crockpot and stir it to combine with juices and seasoning. Keep covered on warm until ready to serve.
Our team has passed around this recipe for years and there are endless options for serving! You can use various sizes of flour tortillas, no tortillas for a chicken taco bowl, or even have chicken nachos when served over chips! Those of us that are gluten free use GF taco seasoning when cooking and serve with warm corn tortillas. Top your tacos with cold sour cream, pico and shredded cheese, or just some fresh cilantro and lime juice! You can’t go wrong.
The only thing that makes this simple dinner recipe even easier is making sure that you’ve got everything you need to make it by keeping the ingredients in your CURAGO shared Grocery List. Quickly inventory the staple items for the meals you make often by simply viewing your completed items in the Grocery List and unchecking the boxes for the items you need to purchase again. These items are then moved back to your current shopping list and you can choose to hide those remaining completed unneeded items for a clean view of things you need to purchase now. To make things even better, your family members can add to your Grocery List, even while you’re at the store! CURAGO shared family organizer updates in real time, meaning you are much less likely to get home without items your family needs!
Whether you’ve got a packed family schedule, or you’d rather play at the pool and spend time with your family rather than cook dinner tonight, we hope you’ll enjoy this easy recipe! When it comes to keeping life simple, it takes a village. Do you have an easy go-to recipe that your family loves? We’d love to see it!
