I changed a few things in this recipe and ended up with a similar dish. I used three bell peppers – one each red, orange, and yellow – and 2-3 pounds of chicken breasts instead of ground chicken. I also added a stick of butter. It juiced up A LOT so I added rice to bring it back to more of a solid consistency. Everything else was the same (including the taco seasoning mix; thanks for that). Afterwards, we added sour cream and shredded cheese in our bowls. Came out real good!
Does the ground chicken need to be cooked prior to putting it in the crockpot?
Becky – it both does or doesn’t. You can chuck it all in – but you will need to open the slow cooker and break it up so it becomes a taco-like crumble (instead of cooking as a solid chunk which can happen), and I’d cook it separately before the veggies or they’d get too soft. Otherwise you can quick sautee the ground chicken (doesn’t have to be cooked through, just browned and crumbled) and then chuck it all in – the chicken will cook through while in the slow cooker.
Have you used ground chicken breast for the crock pot chicken taco bowls?
Yes – I did in this recipe! It’s delicious!
I tend to only use my slow cooker in cooler months, but it totally makes sense to use it in the summer too. Love the idea of taco bowls!
