Chicken Ranch Tacos Recipe {Skillet or Slow Cooker}

August 26, 2012 2 Comments | Disclosure

Super easy and simple way to improve your tacos! I prefer this chicken over ground beef in my tacos any day. I like to cook up some extra chicken and freeze it for another day too. Salad dressing is one of those things that you can often get for free or cheap with coupons, so keep some Ranch on hand for this recipe.

Chicken Ranch Tacos

  • about 3 cups chicken, cooked and cut up
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (I use about 2 Tbsp)
  • 1/2 c Ranch dressing Dressing Coupons

Warm up the chicken pieces in a nonstick skillet on med-high heat. Sprinkle on the dry taco seasoning. Do not add any water. Stir and heat for 5-7 minutes until heated through and seasoning is stuck to the chicken. Add Ranch dressing and stir until evenly coated. Heat for about 2-3 minutes until warmed through.
Serve in taco shells or tortillas with all of your favorite taco fixings!

Want to try it in the slow cooker?

I haven’t tried this method yet, but it is supposed to delicious too!

  • about 2 lbs chicken breast, thawed
  • 1 packet dry Ranch dressing mix
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • about 1/2 c chicken broth Broth Coupons

Throw it all in the slow cooker and cook on low for about 3 hours. Shred the chicken and cook for another 30 minutes.
