Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Tacos

  • Cooking Time:

    3-4 hours on HIGH or 5-6 hours on LOW
  • Servings:



1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts
15 oz. jar of salsa
1 packet of taco seasoning
1/2-1 package of cream cheese

This version of Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos was shared by Facebook friend Cheryl R.  We have a similar recipe on our site, but have never made it with cream cheese before – and it is delish!  Cheryl also says it is SO YUMMY in either a taco salad, hard or soft tacos, or to make chicken enchiladas. It’s so simple and easy to prepare too!

  1. Combine chicken breasts, salsa, taco seasoning, and cream cheese in the slow cooker.
  2. Cover and Crock on HIGH 3-4 hours or LOW 5-6 hours.
  3. Once cooked, remove chicken from the crock and shred using two forks.  Place shredded chicken back in the crock and stir to combine in sauce before serving.

The serving options are endless  – over salad, in taco shells, over rice, use as enchilada filling, etc.

Happy Crocking!

Delicious dish! Easy prep, I set it then pesto 4hrs later it was ready! The chicken was tender and moist.. and good with lunch reheated the next day.

sounds great! Do you thaw the chicken breasts first?

GREAT recipe! I used fresh salsa from the produce department at my grocery store (mild) and mild taco seasoning so that it wouldn’t be too spicy for my kids. They loved it. I ate it on tortilla chips more as a dip. My kids ate it in taco shells. Delicious and so easy!

Delicious! The only change I made to it was that I also added 1 can of Rotel mild tomatoes to give it a little extra kick. Will definitely make it again.
