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!

I just want­ed to let you know that the creamy chick­en taco recipe is amaz­ing! I ate mine with tor­tilla scoop chips and it was tasty! Also, I will add that it tastes just as good the next day!

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.
