Zesty Chicken Tacos

Summer time is the perfect time to use the crock pot. Besides the fact that you don't have to heat your kitchen up to a million degrees, you can just throw a bunch of stuff in, turn it on, and walk away. Major bonus in my eyes!

These tasty tacos are a perfect example of crock pot ease, and they are delicious to boot! In fact, while we were cleaning up dinner, my husband said "those were great. Let's have them again."

I think I can manage that!

Zesty Chicken Tacos

4-6 Large Chicken Breasts {boneless/skinless}
1/2 of a small bottle of Kraft Zesty Italian Salad Dressing
1 packet of dry Ranch Dressing mix
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 TBSP Minced Garlic
1/2 TBSP Chili Powder
1/2 TBSP Ground Cumin

Place Chicken in crock pot. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the meat. Cook on high for about 6 hours, or on low for about 8. When chicken is cooked through, shred and return to crock pot. Serve on tortillas as a chicken taco, or over a bed of lettuce as a salad. Delicious either way! We like to add cheese, avocado, tomato, and black beans... but the chicken is so flavorful, you can really eat it all by itself!
