Easy and Delicious Chicken Taco Salad...



There are probably a hundred ways to make taco salad.  This is just one version I serve my family and I think it's delicious! And it's a cinch, too, because I cook the chicken in the slow cooker.  Easy peasy!!!!



Chicken Taco Salad

-3 chicken breasts
-3 T taco seasoning mix (from store bought or homemade)
-romaine lettuce
-grated cheese of your choice
-tomatoes
-avocado
-cilantro
-pickled jalapeƱos
-sour cream
-salsa
-tortilla chips
-good squeeze of lime

Place 3 chicken breasts in the slow cooker that's been sprayed with nonstick spray.  Sprinkle taco seasoning  mix on top of each chicken breast, add 1/4 cup water, and cook on low 7 hours or high 4 hours.  When done, remove from slow cooker and shred with a fork.  Then pile your plate with chopped lettuce, seasoned chicken, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, jalapeƱos (feel free to use fresh if you want, too!!!), sour cream, salsa, crushed tortilla chips, and squeeze the lime on top.  So SO good!!!  Whatever toppings each family member loves most will make each plate so tasty.


Tip: Make sure you have all ingredients chopped beforehand so that when it comes time to eat it's all just a matter of piling it all up on your plate.  YUM!!!

I love that I can eat this without bread! My family is big veggie eaters so this will settle just right.
