Happy Friday! Whether it’s breakfast tacos, beef tacos, taco salads or leftover tacos – I’ll never get tired of having TACOS. If you’re looking for a recipe that’s delicious and easy to whip up at home, then try my famous ranch chicken tacos. They’re not actually mine – I got this recipe from my sister-in-law who got it from her momma and so forth. It’s seriously a Hendrix family favorite! Best of all, I can make this in my crockpot on those busy work days. It does all the work for me. Let’s get started!
2 lbs chicken breast (I like using organic free range chicken!)
4 oz Good Seasons Zesty Italian dressing (buy the powder mix version in the dressings aisle. They also have one that comes with the salad dressing bottle and I recommend just getting that and following the instructions for the dressing- so easy!!)
1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Packet ranch dressing powder mix
1/2 Cup of water
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
Ready for the easiest part? Place all the ingredients above in a crockpot. Cook on high setting for 4-6 hours or on low for 8 hours. Then, with a fork shred the chicken (it will be super tender!) Feel free to serve over a salad, burritos, flour tortillas (I love the gluten-free ones!), hard shell tacos, etc. Get creative!
Optional Toppings: Shredded Mexican cheese, sour cream, Salsa, and/or sliced avocado to make it extra delicious 🙂
