Easy Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken

One of my favorite quick and easy dinners is chicken tacos. Throw the chicken in the crock pot in the morning with some spices and water, and by dinnertime you have yummy, seasoned chicken for many nights to come! This week was Quinn’s birthday (February is a big month in our household) so for the family party I kept it simple with chicken tacos!

Seasoned Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken

  • 4-5 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin powder

Place chicken in crock pot. (frozen or thawed) In a large mixing bowl combine water with ALL the remaining ingredients. Stir until well combined and then dump on the chicken. Cook in crock pot for 4-6 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. I like to shred the chicken about an hour before I am going to serve it so that it can soak in all the spices. I simply give it a quick shred in the crock pot then put the lid back on. Transfer to mixing bowl when ready to serve and give it a good shred. Use for chicken tacos, soups, salads, etc.
