Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Bowls

Whether you are meal prepping for the week or feeding the whole family, chicken taco bowls are a great healthy option. Your family won’t realize all the nutritious ingredients because there is so much flavor packed in to this dish with just a few simple steps!

Begin by placing your slow cooker on either high or low, depending on how long you would like your chicken tacos to cook. Then place 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of thawed boneless chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker.

Next, add half a pound or fresh or frozen corn (one can) and 16 ounces of salsa (one jar). If you would like to add beans, add one jar of your favorites right now. We aren’t big fans, so we leave them out.

Once you have the corn and salsa added, mix al your spices and garlic in a separate bowl. Then sprinkle over chicken and vegetables. Stir lightly to combine all ingredients but without disturbing the chicken.

Cover and let it cook, making sure not to open until ready. If you are cooking on low, cook for 6-8 hours and about 4 hours for high. Make sure chicken is cooked through before serving. Shred chicken and enjoy!
