This slow cooker Thai chicken taco recipe is delicious and also healthy. After just a couple hours, you’ll have flavorful taco meat at your disposal.
Easy. So easy. Using simple ingredients, this is another dump everything in the slow cooker and let it cook recipe. I threw everything in this and when I came home my house smelled better than my favorite Thai restaurant. I didn’t take too much time with this recipe because it’s just my Slow Cooker Thai Shredded Chicken recipe used as taco meat. It’s a really easy recipe that makes a great freezer meal. This is what it looks like going in the slow cooker.
You don’t need to smother this with an unhealthy sauce. There will be a nice coconut sauce left in the slow cooker for you to use. You don’t have to make tacos out of the shredded meat. This is great over some greens for a nice salad or rice. To keep this meal paleo, I served these in some Siete tortillas. They’re made from almond flour. You can of course use regular tortillas whether they be flour or corn.
