Crock Pot Ranch Chicken Tacos

I have a weak spot for Mexican food. Tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, beans, rice… I could seriously eat it every day! Too bad this doesn’t fit into my diet plan so well. Until I came across Weight Watchers Ranch Chicken Tacos! So easy, so good, and so diet friendly :)

Ingredients:

– 3-4 Eating Right (97% fat free) chicken breasts
– 1 packet low sodium taco seasoning (I chose Mild)
– 1 packet Ranch seasoning mix
– 2 cups low sodium and fat free chicken broth
plus
– shredded lettuce
– pico de gallo or salsa
– light or fat free sour cream
– taco shells

Directions:
1. Put chicken, taco seasoning, ranch seasoning, and chicken broth in Crock Pot.
2. Cook on low for 4-6 hours
3. Shred chicken with fork and let it soak up the broth.
Serve in taco shells topped with lettuce, tomato/salsa, and sour cream.

This shredded chicken is so flavorful, moist and tasty! Perfect for tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, salads, and soup! I even added a little of it to some pre-made tortilla soup from the grocery store deli. YUM!

I have been on WW for several months now and just want something different. I am going to try this recipe tomorrow. Will post a comment later. Just wanted to say thank you for getting out of the WW food dump.

I made this tonight. To answer the questions above, I used frozen breast and put crock pot on low, let it cook all day while I was at work. When I got home I shredded the chicken and left in broth for about 40 minutes. We made "taco salads" added doritos for crunch. Was very good, everyone liked it and that's not easy to accomplish in this house. :)

Sarah – I enjoyed this recipe. I cook for just my husband and I and while I love crockpot cooking – it is a challenge to cook meals that do not end up tossed because there is just too much food for two people. We had the chicken tacos and then I used the leftover chicken for tortilla soup the next night for Bible study. Success!! It was a hit both nights. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

My husband and I LOVE this recipe! It is SO easy and turns out so delicious every time! Last night I used legs instead of breasts and (although it yielded a lot less chicken) it was to die for. I give this recipe two thumbs up. Thanks!

I pinned this recipe however long ago and was looking for something easy peasy to make for dinner. I threw this in the crock pot, just as the recipe called for and 6 hours later I shredded the chicken and it soaked up all the juice. We're having tacos and my older son (8) gave the chicken the thumbs up. Thanks!

Tried this, turned out so good. Slow cooked for 8 hours, while at work, came home to a hot cooked chicken tortilla soup for me and chicken crispy tacos for my family. Yummm

Anyone know the net carbs for this? I’m new to the Atkins world :) And if I am just eating this recipe as a soup (not as a taco), what is the serving size, cup(s) wise?

I am eating it as a soup (not in the taco shell) so I just need the serving size, cup(s) wise? Also, does anyone know the net carbs per serving? I’m
new to the Low-Carb world:)

Thanks!

I don’t ever register or comment on sites. I came across this recipe on pinterest, read through it, and decided I wanted to pin it and try it. But THEN, I scrolled down and saw a couple of fun crochet projects that caught my eye. The next thing I knew, I was pinning like crazy! You have THE BEST site for recipes and projects!! I have never followed a single blog or site to make sure I see everything, and certainly never commented. But I am now following you and had to just drop a line to say “Thank you!” You truly have inspired me to make some great meals and given me enough crochet projects to keep me busy for the next few years!

How many will this recipe feed? I would love to use it for our family beach trip this summer, we have 20 people to feed.

made this last night.

DEFINITELY one of the best crock pot meals ive ever made.

For the record, i prepped it all as a freezer meal and tossed it in the crock pot first thing in the morning. worked great.
