Crockpot Mexican Chicken is an easy low carb dinner recipe. You can serve it alone or with low carb tortillas. We like to serve it with shredded lettuce, tomatoes and even Mexican Rice or refried Beans. You could even add corn, black beans and fresh avocado too! It is the perfect Freezer Meal. I like to double this recipe and then eat it for dinner and freeze the leftovers.
I also like to serve Crockpot Mexican Chicken with:
If you use your own Homemade Taco Seasoning it is a great way to ensure this meal to be gluten free! This is a great stockpile recipe as we often get salsa free. I like to freeze this recipe too!
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. A great way to save money is to purchase your meat in bulk from ZayconFresh.

If you want to prepare this as a freezer meal. Simply dump all ingredients into a freezer safe bag and freeze. When you are ready to cook remove from the freezer to the refrigerator and thaw overnight. Dump into the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours on low. It can be frozen before cooking it or after cooked. I often make a double batch and use this to meal prep through the week.
