    Here’s an even easier and cheaper way: Put the frozen breasts in with a jar of salsa and let it cook all day. Comes out delicious!

    • Vickie says

      I did these last weekend; used WalMart black bean and corn salsa and a can of black beans. They were GREAT!!!

    • jennifer says

      sheri, so you just put the chicken and salsa in there and let it cooked all day. Do you cut up the chicken after it done?

  2. Sara Munoz says

    I personally love using chicken thighs in my crockpot. VERY inexpensive, and easy. There is basically just one flap of skin & fat to pull off (before or after cooking), and one bone that falls out while cooking. With this recipe, I would remove skin beforehand, or leave on and omit broth.

  3. brittany Atkins says

    What gravy do you use? Chicken or Turkey and does this make it taste funny? I am weird about gravy

    • Raining Hot Coupons says

      Hi Brittany, I used Turkey! I couldn’t taste it really but I think it add a little flavor. =) Everything tasted good so hopefully you like it.

  4. says

    These look amazing! My husband recently discovered he loves ranch, so this would be perfect! Im going to add this to our menu for this week coming!

  5. DD says

    PLEASE, NEVER EVER PUT FROZEN MEAT IN THE CROCKPOT TO COOK NO MATTER WHAT RECIPES SAY.
    FOODBORN PATHOGENS MULTIPLY DURING THE FROZEN & RAW STATE TO COOKED AT THE LOW CROCKPOT TEMPS.
    CHECK OUT FOOD SAFETY PER FDA.

    • stacy says

      Do you by chance have a link to that? I dont use a crockpot but i do bake frozen chicken in the oven and i havent ever died. Luck?

      • Sarah Leslee says

        Yes, the USDA says not to cook frozen meat in a slow cooker before defrosting but it’s considered “safe” to do so in a hot oven of 350 or so.
        That said, as long as everything is cooked to 165 on a thermometer, the chances of any bacteria surviving are very low. Bring it to a boil for minute or two and you all but guaranteed victory against the cooties. Take extra care with vulnerable populations like the very young, elderly and immune compromised.
        That said, very few people worried about frozen chicken boobs don’t find their fingers dipping into raw cookie dough made with eggs or an over easy egg for that matter.

    • Kim says

      I have always used frozen chicken in the crock pot and no one in my family has ever become sick from cooking that way. Is there a link that you would recommend that references this info?

      • Brittany Pruett says

        I’m actually in a food safety class at my school right now. The problem with it is, that your food stays at an unhealthy temp for too long (while the outside heats the inside is still frozen). It’s really no different than laying a frozen chicken on the counter for 4 hours. It tell more on most websites, just google food safety.

    • Jan Carleh says

      For many years, I have cooked frozen chicken breasts in my slowcooker (set on low). Never had a problem with anyone getting sick!

  6. Jessica says

    I would love to try this. It looks delicious. However… my son is a vegitarian and I am learning how to use the Morning Star chicken and crumbles. I don’t think I have it down so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how to turn this into a delicious vegitarian meal? :)

  7. jerika says

    what I do (im a vegetarian and my boyfriend is a meat and potatoes kind of guy) is I would make that in the crockpot and then before that is done I will make morningstar crumbles on the stovetop. what you can do is add a bit of salsa, mexican seasonings and even some blackbeans so everyone can be happy. (Yes i know its a hassle but he hates meat substitutes >.<)

  8. jerika says

    Or use Gardein (the greatest meat substiture for vegetarians) they have shreded bbq chicken and regular chicken that you can use instead!! seriously it tastes amazing! their beefless burgers imo are better than cow ones!

  9. Carole says

    Some cookbooks suggest that frozen poultry thaws and is held at a dangerously low temperature when cooking in a Crock-Pot. Bacteria in raw chicken multiplies between 40 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. A cooking temperature of 160 degrees should be achieved to safely cook chicken. Slow cookers set to the “low” setting that cook at a minimum temperature of 160 degrees and 200 degrees on “high” will safely thaw and heat chicken for long-term cooking

  10. brittany Atkins says

    We loved it!! I made them tonight and used the frozen chicken. I also used the chicken gravy, Sarah did you use turkey cause that is what you had or do you like it better than chicken?

    • Raining Hot Coupons says

      Hi Brittany! I actually did just use turkey because it’s what I had but honestly I am pretty sure either one would be perfect. =)

  11. says

    I have an easier version and it’s awesome. Chicken Breasts, a large jar of salsa, a packet or two or taco seasoning and some dried jalapenos. Throw it all together and cook.

  12. Amanda Gehman says

    Thank you so much. This sounds delicious and will be for dinner tomorrow night. 1 question… above you said 1 can of chicken broth but the picture shows 2 cans… lol.

  13. brandy says

    OMG! This was so good and so easy… my husband said this was one of the best things he has ever tasted. Thanks so much for the receipe!!!

  14. Sarah says

    Really, TWO packets of Taco Seasoning and TWO of Ranch? Its not “too much” ? I love the sound of it all, but I would think one packet of each would be sufficient… I was just wondering… its not too salty or to overwhelming in taste with 2 of each packet? Thanks :)

  15. Chrissy says

    I’m doing this right now! I chose to go a cheaper way and make the broth (throwing chicken buillion cubes in with water) and just used a gravy packet. I love chicken tacos and am hoping this turns out well!

  16. elizabeth says

    Trying this tonight! I didn’t have gravy so I put in a can of cream of chicken soup. It looks and smells amazing . I hope it turns out as good as it looks.

  17. elizabeth says

    Oh yes it was amazing with the deep fried taco shells . Making nanchos w the left overs tomorrow. Thanks for the amazing recipe.

  18. nathalie says

    Making this right now almost done can’t wait! Thanks love your recipes page.. I literally never used my crock pot till today love it!

    • Kristy Cobb says

      I made this last night and my husband and I were both overwhelmed with salt. I even used the low sodium chicken broth. I’m thinking maybe 2 packets of taco seasoning and 2 packets of ranch are way too much.

      • Raining Hot Coupons says

        Yes you could definitely cut back to 1 packet of each so it will be less salty and I’m sure it would still be tasty. =)

  19. Kelly Hendel says

    Just put everything in the crockpot for this recipe. Can’t wait til its done! Looks like it makes a lot which is good since I have 3 growing boys and a hungry husband to feed!

  20. Kelly Hendel says

    This was delicious! But have to agree with the previous poster…it was a little too salty for my taste. I think that would be easily fixed by using the low-sodium version of the seasoning and broth.
    Definitely a make again recipe!

  21. Nikki Turner says

    This sounds so good. I make an easy taco recipe with frozen chicken breast, taco seasoning, Rotel or salsa. It is so easy & delicious!! I use flour tortillas, black or pinto beans, sour cream & cheese. Even my picky 8 year old will eat it!!

  22. DealSeeking4you says

    Hi Sarah,
    I just wanted to let you know that we tried this recipe and it was YUMMY!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing

  23. says

    This recipe looks so yummy…like yum yum yummy…lol
    And seems so easy to make. my family looves tacos with chicken..I want to try this one…was wondering if you could sub the Ranch dressing for bottle dressing…might give that a try and let you know…Ty for yummy recipes =)

    • dana clark says

      I have been making this for yrs I guess u could say I’m the crockpot dinner guru, i use mine so often that we just call it the magic pot in my house cuz no matter what you put in it it comes out great…. anyways back to your question… I make large batches of this n freeze it in 1 pound pkgs cuz it does make great enchiladas also you can just warm the tortillias (no oil) and serve with chopped cilantro and onion with lime wedges for street taco’s, and they are just amazing. also makes great chicken taco salads, just sayin lol. also when I make mine I just put frozen chicken rotel tomatoes a little water and the taco packets, its a little cheaper

    • Raining Hot Coupons says

      You know what, I bet that would work out perfectly!! I may have to try that one day. Thanks for the idea. =)

  24. Danielle says

    Made this last night and the hubby LOVED it! I added a can of original Rotel Tomatoes and it turned out great!! My daughter (3) loved it as well!! So family approved and yet so easy to do..thanks again for the recipe!! ;)

  25. Michelle Bryant says

    Never fry when you can bake! I put my small tortillas in my toaster oven. put them drapped over and through 2-3 of the rack wires depending on how big you want and toast them when you take them out they are just like the stand alone taco shells you buy in the kits.

  26. wendy says

    thanks you for sharing this, i made it for dinner last night and it was a hit!!!! my husband even took it for left overs today for lunch. I didnt use the frozen chicken, but i cooked it the same time. :0)

  27. Nicole P says

    Another great cheap and easy way of making chicken tacos that are delishhhhh is using 2 large chicken breasts (I usually pick these up at Sam’s) and 1 pack of taco seasoning along with a half a jar of salsa let it cook for 6-7 hours on low so YUMMY! I make the Pionner woman’s restraunt style salsa so this is the kind that I use ;) I’ve made taco soup, chicken and pineapple quesadillas, enchiladas and nachos with the leftovers before.

  28. Casey says

    I made this tonight, after my husband’s daughter made them for him. I felt the meat was a bit salty, will use only one packet of ranch next time and perhaps low sodium broth. My family likes fried flour taco shells, and I have been using coconut oil, brushed over each side of the tortillia, then toast/fry them in a pan. I love the idea of making taco filling in the crock pot! My hubby said the house smelled wonderful all day! Thanks for the recipe.

  29. Lauren says

    This is SUPER tasty, thank you! Didn’t have a can of gravy so just added a little extra broth & a few spoonfuls of cream of mushroom soup. Keeper!

  30. Jill says

    This is going on my list of “Must Try Recipes”. My hubby is weird about any kind of Mexican food. He usually only likes quesadillas and sometimes he likes tacos. I just showed him these and he thinks they look great. I have the green light to give them a try. It is so hard to cook for someone who is so picky, so I can’t wait to whip some up.

  31. Simone says

    Your recipe says to use corn tortilla but in the picture above it looks like they are flour tortillas. Did you use the corn or flour tortillas in the above pic? I love flour tortilla when you fry them and they puff up a little. Corn tortilla are a little chewier. Hubby prefers corn & I prefer flour. lol Just curious which you used. :)

  32. Bonnie says

    I made this recipe and my husband is super picky that I can’t stand it yet he loved the chicken tacos!! Thank God I have another recipe I can add to our menu! I didn’t have any salsa so I put 2 8oz cans of unsalted tomato sauce and it came out delish!

  33. amanda says

    Super yummy but I just keep the corn tortillas as is no bake or fried, having a mexican husband thats how we roll haha so good thanks for the recipe oh and don’t forget the cilantro on top yuuuuuum

  34. says

    So delicious! I used two cans of broth, two cans of chicken gravy, 6 chicken breasts, and one each of ranch mix and taco mix. The fried tortillas is the best thing I have done in a long time! This turned out so delicious! The “medium-heat” threw me for a loop since my crockpot only has low and high, so I did an hour on low and 2 on high, turned out perfect!!! Thankyou!!!

  35. says

    Oh! And, have a pair if kitchen scissors near by to pop the air pockets in the tortillas when you are frying! Mine would have blown up without them lol!

  36. Michele says

    I actually cooked this on the stove (in a bit of a rush). My family loved the tacos – absolutely yummy. My husband ate 5 ….. the fried tortillas were the best. My daughter ate the fried tortillas solo… Great recipe

  37. Kandis says

    Was curious about how many tacos this can make on average? I am most likely going to make a LARGE batch for a “fiesta” party.
