Crockpot Fiesta Shredded Chicken

This is so easy and makes the best shredded chicken for tacos, taco salads, quesadillas, and nachos. My step-dad has been known to make chicken salad for sandwiches out of the leftovers.

Crockpot Fiesta Shredded Chicken


4-8 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups water
1 pkg fajita or taco seasoning mix (I like the taco seasoning best, but this works with either)
1 can diced tomatoes with green chilis


Turn crockpot to low. Mix together water and taco seasoning and pour in crockpot. Place whole chicken breasts in crockpot. Pour entire can of tomatoes over chicken. Cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Chicken is done when it is easily shredded (most of the broth will have been soaked up). Using two forks, shred chicken and mix well. You may add additional tomatoes if desired.

Number of Servings: 12-16
