This slow cooker taco chicken is the perfect way to make a large pot of chicken for family night tacos using only two ingredients!
If you don’t own a slow cooker, get one! Nothing makes life easier than a recipe like this Clean Eating 2 Ingredient Slow Cooker Taco Chicken recipe where you can quickly put a couple ingredients into a slow cooker and walk away for hours just to come home to a hot meal!
This 2 ingredient slow cooker taco chicken is my go-to recipe for Taco Tuesdays. I put it in the slow cooker 4-6 hours before I need it and then I have all that time to get ready. Just imagine the toppings you could prep in 4 hours! (So kidding). But truly, it’s quick it’s easy, it’s healthy and with the right salsa, it’s low carb to boot (with a low carb tortilla, that is…).
If you want to keep the tacos entirely low carb, check out my topping suggestions here.
Otherwise, it’s super easy to get creative! I always put out a bunch of small dishes with different toppings so everyone can make their tacos just the way they like them. It’s an easy way to make sure there are no complaints at the dinner table. Everyone around here loves taco night for that very reason. Who wouldn’t want a taco made especially or them?
And honestly, if I get no complaints at dinner time these days, it’s a total winner in my book. Seriously, why didn’t somebody tell me motherhood involved running an entire complaint department??
And just FYI, I am working on a low carb tortilla recipe. I’m just still trying to get the recipe right. For me, texture in a tortilla is the most important thing after flavor and I just haven’t gotten that magic combination yet. But when I do, you can be sure I’ll post it on the blog here!
Until then, happy Taco Tuesday!

SLOW COOKER TACO CHICKEN RECIPE:
If you need a quick and easy way to make tacos, give this 2 ingredients taco chicken a try in your slow cooker!
- 1 1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 3 large, raw breasts)
- 1 cup salsa (no sugar added)
Place the chicken in your slow cooker and pour the salsa over the top. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until the chicken shreds easily simply by stirring it.
NOTE: Do not lift the lid of your slow cooker until the end of the cooking time. Lifting the lid during cooking will lengthen the amount of time needed to cook as well as make it possible for bacteria to build on your food because the internal temperature of the slow cooker is not maintained.
