These 2 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken Tacos are one of my family’s favorite go-to’s for Taco Tuesday! Now you can’t beat Taco Tuesday, but making it even easier to make is a total win in this mom’s book. I love that with Weight Watchers, boneless skinless chicken breasts are zero points.

Weeknights are busy, too, so having an easy dinner is a must! Crockpots are my favorite in the fall aka soccer months!! Taco Tuesday is the kid’s favorite and easy to make as well! As long as you use a zero-point salsa, this will be Zero Weight Watchers points.
WHAT IS Weight Watchers?
When starting a new weight loss program or diet change, consult a doctor or physician about personal health concerns. It is a good idea to have blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and hormones checked at a physical before and during being on the WW program.
New to Weight Watchers?? Also known as WW, a weight loss program uses points assigned to food to track and lose weight. When you sign up, you take an assessment that will assign you a point value to eat daily and a weekly allowance. You can carry over 4 points from the day into your weekly allowance, which is handy when you need more points.
I have been on Weight Watchers since 2011. They have had Points Plus Value, WW Smartpoints, blue plan, green plan, purple plan, WW Personal Points, and now Weight Watchers Points. The new Weight Watchers Simplified plan is the new program launched in November 2022 similar to previous plans like WW Smartpoints, with some color plans.
No matter the WW plan, they work to help you learn healthy eating habits. I have hit lifetime goal weight several times but stopped operating the plan and tracking, so the weight does creep back on. You stay on as a lifetime member, working towards your goal. Head on over ->here to get a month for free.
2 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken Tacos Ingredients:
- Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts– You could use other variations of boneless chicken, but the thighs will make for tougher meat and more grease in the crock.
How To Make 2 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken Tacos:
Spray the inside of the crockpot with a nonstick cooking spray. If you want a crockpot liner also makes for a fast clean up as well.

Trim any excess fat off your chicken breasts before placing them in the crockpot. I used my 4.5-quart crockpot to make this, but when doing large batches for leftovers I use my 6-quart or 8-quarts.

Pour the salsa over the chicken breast.
Give everything a quick stir to make sure the chicken is coated.
Cover with crockpot with lid and cook on low for about 4-6 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken breasts have cooked to 165 degrees.
Using a spoon, remove the salsa chicken breasts from the crockpot and place them into a kitchen stand mixer. If you don’t have a kitchen stand mixer, you can use meat claws or a mixing bowl with a hand mixer.
Using the paddle attachment, set it on slow and allow it to shred the chicken. *
If you want a finely shredded chicken allow it to mix longer, and be sure to stand over it to watch so you don’t shred the meat too fine. See my post -> here for more tips on shredding chicken.
If the chicken seems dry you can always add in more juice from the crockpot, plus it will also add more flavor to the chicken!
Serve with all your favorite taco toppings and don’t forget the chips and Pace salsa on the side!

How To Store Leftover 2 Ingredient Chicken Tacos
Store in the fridge in an air-tight container or bag for up to 5 days. You can freeze this meat in a container or bag for up to three months after you cook the chicken.
