Ingredients

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts about 2-3 lbs
  • 1 jar (16 oz) salsa verde
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • cup honey
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice 2 limes
  • 1 packet (1 oz) ranch seasoning mix

Instructions

  • Spray insert of a slow cooker with cooking spray. Place chicken in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • In a glass measuring cup or mixing bowl, add the salsa verde, sour cream, honey, fresh lime juice, and ranch seasoning packet. Whisk until combined. Pour over the chicken.
  • Cover with the lid and cook on LOW heat for 6 hours.
  • Either take the chicken out and shred it with two forks OR you can shred the chicken inside the slow cooker with two forks. It is fall apart tender so it's really easy to shred. Add shredded chicken back into the sauce and stir together. Either serve right away or leave it on the WARM setting until you're ready.
  • ** There is lots of liquid inside the slow cooker after adding the shredded chicken back in. That's ok! That is what provides the flavor and moist chicken instead of dry chicken in tacos. Simply serve the shredded chicken with a slotted spoon or tongs.
  • Serve tacos with choice of toppings! We love eating these as soft tacos with the small flour tortillas. You can also use crunchy corn taco shells, use the chicken inside burritos, salads, nachos. Really anything cause it's so yummy.

Notes

If the chicken breasts you are using are really large (like the ones you get at Costco or Sam's Club) then just use 4 of the large chicken breasts. 
Calorie count is just for the chicken for two tacos. It does not include toppings or tortilla shells.
