  1. Jessica Desarro says:

    I got 8 points per serving (2 shells) when I used low carb tortilla shells

  2. Michelle says:

    Can you advise how to make the taco / ranch sauce?

  3. What kind of shells should I use?

    • I just used the standard, store-brand crunchy tortilla taco shells.

      • The store bought shells are 3points each which are 6 points in total so the receipt must be more points. Can you please explain your calculations?

        Thank you

        • The calculations I entered were the nutritional stats for each ingredient that I used. I’m guessing that the biggest variations are on the brand of taco shells and the brand of chicken. I used Trader Joe’s Organic Chicken breasts and I think I used Trader Joe’s Taco shells for this recipe too. These shells are 3 Points + for two taco shells. Make sure to check the packaging on yours…it might say that 1 serving is 2 shells.

  4. I made this tonight and the flavor was amazing. I found the chicken mixture had too much liquid. Should I have drained the liquid before spreading the chicken?

    • You can drain it, if you’d like. Chicken breasts can vary in how much water they retain, so this may sometimes happen.

      • Dear Laaloosh
        I was going to make the crock post chicken ranch receipt and when I figured out the taco’s alone they were 6 points for 2. I am not sure how you calculated your points. Can you please explain. Thank you

  5. Do you defrost the chicken first

  6. Rebecca Macdonald says:

    I also use half a packet of each the ranch and taco seasoning. Tasty and not salty.

  7. Rebecca Macdonald says:

    We love this stuff. To mix things up, I shredded the chicken, added some grated cheese, frozen corn and black beans. Then I took the mixture and wrapped it in flour tortillas and baked. Viola! Ranch Chicken Flautas! I ate mine plain, but the kiddos dipped in ranch. If my husband wasn’t planning to take the leftovers to work tomorrow, I would have another one. Drool…

  8. Kris Moran says:

    This has easily become one of my go to recipes! My husband loves it and even my picky daugther will eat it! I have used the left over chicken to make a taco soup! Yummy! I just put the left over chicken in the crock pot with chicken broth, black beans, corn and some more taco and ranch seasoning. Topped with some ww cheese yummy!

  9. how long if I do it on high?

  10. tommy's mom says:

    This recipe is low salt and makes about the amoun in one envelope of purchased type.
    1 tablespoonchili powder

    1/4 teaspoongarlic powder

    1/4 teaspoononion powder

    1/4 teaspooncrushed red pepper flakes

    1/4 teaspoondried oregano

    1/2 teaspoonpaprika

    1 1/2 teaspoonsground cumin

    1 teaspoonsea salt

    1 teaspoonblack pepper

  11. This is a great concept but WAY too salty! It was easy, but definitely will try to use my own seasonings next time at least for the taco seasoning. I used low sodium fat free broth too…

  12. Made this tonight and loved it! Tho I found adding tomato paste made it a bit tastier, and next time I’ll only do half the water.

  13. My husband and I thought the chicken was way too salty! I rinsed the chicken this morning and now looking for another recipe to use it in. Any ideas?

  14. Made these & will make again, over & over. Not only were they very easy to make, my whole family loved them. Everything I have made from this site & from Skinny Taste, we loved. I use the recipe box to create a weekly meal plan and then print out the list for shopping. So easy to stay on track & eat good food.
    Thanks for a great site!

  15. I just made these and they are delicious! I normally don’t eat any mexican food (or anything, for that matter) without cheese but this chicken was so good I didn’t even miss it. Great recipe.

  16. Kellygirl03 says:

    Definitely delicious! All I heard from my fiance was “mmmmmmmmmmm”! I agree though, a bit too salty for my taste. From now on I will make my own taco seasoning instead of buying the packets.

  17. These were good, but I found them to be a little too salty. I will definitely make again with the low sodium taco seasoning and low sodium broth. Thanks for the recipe!

  18. I had some chicken that I needed to cook, so I tried this recipe, not expecting much. BOY WAS I WRONG!!!! This made the BEST flavored chicken ever!!! I never did make tacos with it. I ate it straight up. And it’s delicious cold, too!

  19. momof2girls says:

    Going to make this one night while on our Beach Vacation….throw the chicken in before heading to the beach….ready when we get back from a great day on the beach. Thank you for sharing this. :)

  20. Made this for dinner last night and leftovers again today for lunch. This was excellent. Very tasty and everyone loved it.

  21. Can this hang out in the crock pot for several hours beyond 4-6? I would be turning it on as I left for work in the hour, probably 10 hours before dinner time.

    • laaloosh says:

      I think it should be fine. Haven’t tried it myself, but given that it’s just meat, it shouldn’t be a problem.

    • Angela Cleaver says:

      When I have to cook it all day I usually put the chicken in frozen. It’s perfectly done when I get home from work.

  22. Oh my goodness. Those were some of the best tacos I have ever had! Thank you for sharing.

  23. Making this tomorrow night!

  24. do the points include the taco shells?

    • It must because there is no way a little bit of chicken with just the seasonings is 6 pts.
      Plus it says:Divide chicken and taco fixings evenly amongst the taco shells.
      Serving size is 2 tacos
      Each serving = 6 Points +
