Crockpot Chicken and Chicken Tacos

I get many recipe ideas off of my favorite blogs. Sometimes we like them. Sometimes we don't.

One recipe that I found and that has become a staple in our house is how to cook a whole chicken in a crockpot. The Happy Housewife gave me a SIMPLE, NO FUSS way of making a whole chicken in the crockpot.

Whole Chicken in Crockpot
Take your chicken out of the wrapper.
Remove the innards.
Rinse and dry the chicken.
Place in crockpot.
Add seasonings on top.
Put lid on.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours.

Super Duper Easy.

I made one last week and used McCormicks grill mates seasoning on my chicken and it came out Delicious!

We ate it with mashed potatoes, and green beans. We had a TON leftover.

Since I have been trying not to waste food, I took the leftovers and made chicken tacos on another night. Another super EASY, QUICK recipe.

pre-cooked chicken
package of taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
taco shells
favorite toppings for tacos

Heat up chicken in your skillet.

Add taco seasoning and water.

Cook until heated through (about 3 minutes or so)
Place meat mixture on taco shells.
Add toppings.

Have you made anything quick, easy, and/or homemade this week? Tell me about it!

  1. Wanna REALLY stretch it? Pick all the meat off the bone, put it back in the crockpot with water, onion, carrot, and celery. Simmer for 6-8 hrs. And now you have chicken stock that you can freeze for use later in soup, stew, rice, etc.

  2. We do what Mysti said too, I actually have some in the crockpot right now. :)

    These tacos look great! Hubby doesn't really like chicken tacos, but I love them.
