{Crockpot} Chicken Taco Salad

This is one of my staple recipes for the week; because, it is so easy to make and so delicious. You simply throw the chicken in a crockpot, chop up the ingredients and voila you have dinner!

{Crockpot} Chicken Taco Salad

Ingredients for Chicken:

  • 1.5 pounds organic free-range chicken breasts
  • 14 oz. of mild to medium fresh salsa (I like the Medium Salsa Especial from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/4 cup organic low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 TB cumin
  • Fresh ground pepper

Instructions for {Crockpot} Chicken:

  1. Plug in your crockpot and set to High.
  2. Pour half of the salsa at the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Next, rinse off the chicken in the sink and place into crockpot.
  4. Then pour the rest of the salsa in.
  5. Add the other ingredients (pepper to your liking – I use a pepper grinder and twist it around 6-8 times).
  6. Have the chicken cook for a maximum of 4 hours. Check it in 3 hours by using 2 forks to shred it. If it shreds easily, it is done.
  7. Once it shreds, put crockpot setting to Keep Warm/Warm until you are ready to serve.

Ingredients for Salad:

  • 2 Cups Organic Spinach
  • 2 TB Organic 3 Blend Cheese
  • 4-6 Tortilla Chips – Crushed
  • 2 TB Sliced Black Olives
  • 1/2 Avocado Sliced
  • 1 TB Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Pinch of Cilantro
  • 2 TB Salsa

Instructions for Salad:

  1. Place spinach on plate.
  2. Top with 1/4 of chicken that is in the crockpot (so you have enough for 4 servings).
  3. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Sprinkle on crushed tortilla chips.
  5. Add sliced black olives.
  6. Add avocado.
  7. Top with Plain Greek Yogurt (this is a great substitution for sour cream)
  8. Add cilantro.
  9. Add salsa as your dressing.
  10. Enjoy the salad!

**Note: I will add a picture of the salad once I cook this during the week.
