These Crockpot Chicken Tacos with Pineapple Salsa are so fun – use the chicken for tacos, burrito bowls, salads and more!
Say hello to the BEST Crockpot Chicken Tacos you'll ever have!
Today I'm partnering with a local food brand based right here in Toronto to bring you a healthy, easy idea to whip up as we ease back into our routines and head back to work and school.
And what better way than with pretty much everyone's favourite food, tacos?
How to Make Crockpot Chicken tacos
Cooking chicken in the crockpot is one of my fave ways to meal prep.
It takes a lot of time and effort off your plate in terms of spending a ton of time in the kitchen, and the seasonings are relatively simple so you don't have to run out and buy a whole bunch of ingredients.
In this case, I've used chicken broth, onions, chili powder and garlic powder as a simple seasoning base and then used Kensington Market Street Food's Mexican Adobo Dressing as a way to kick the flavours up a notch. I love using simple ingredients with bold flavours like this dressing as a shortcut in the kitchen. Add in some fresh cilantro (or parsley) and this chicken will easily get you through the work week.
From there it's just a matter of adding your homemade salsa, and again, I'm using another delicious product from the Kensington Market Street Food lineup of products – the Pickled Pineapple and Jalapeño is a delicious salsa in its own right and all I've done is chop the pineapple up a little bit more before adding it.
Add your other fave taco toppings to the chicken and corn tortillas and dinner is served!
