Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Recipe


This slow cooker chicken taco recipe is delicious and easy. I'm not a big fan of beef tacos and went on the hunt for some fantastic chicken taco recipes. I tried a few different ones, but my family fell in love with this one the most. They would eat it every Tuesday if I made it.

Ingredients that go into the slow cooker:



  • 2lbs Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cup of very warm water
  • ¼ cup Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tsp dry mustard
  • 2 Tsp salt
  • 2 Tsp chili powder 

Whisk together all of the marinade ingredients: 1 cup water, ⅓ cup ketchup, ¼ cup vinegar, 2 Tbsp lemon juice, 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 4 Tbsp melted butter, ⅓ cup brown sugar, 2 tsp dry mustard, 2 tsp salt, 2 tsp chili powder. 


Add chicken to the slow cooker and pour marinade over the top. Turn a couple times to coat in sauce. Set slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours, then keep warm until ready to serve. 

The chicken will be incredibly tender and easy to shred. Pull chicken with two forks and let it sit in slow cooker juices until ready to serve.
