Too Easy Chicken Tacos

This is a recipe that I have been making for a while. It is my boys favorite for tacos. One thing about this recipe is you need to make sure that you use the McCormick Chicken Taco Seasoning Mix.

You CANNOT use regular old taco seasoning. I tried doing that and it does not taste any where near the same. I thought it was actually not very good. I also never add water to the recipe. I never do, but some people that I have given the recipe to said that their chicken turned out dry. I don’t know why the difference, but it’s never been a problem for me. So do as you please.

  • My husband really likes making chicken tacos with the regular McCormick taco seasoning. He never uses water either. But I wonder if it’ll be different for him in the crockpot. Thanks for publishing this recipe, I just got a new crockpot and am always looking for great frozen chicken recipes!
