Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 15 minutes


  • 2 pounds (approx. 0.9 kg) of fresh chicken breasts
  • 1 packet (1 ounce/28 grams) ranch seasoning mix
  • 2/3 cup (approx. 160 ml) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Soft taco shells
  • Your beloved assortment of taco toppings:
  • diced tomatoes,
  • shredded lettuce
  • sour cream
  • grated cheese
  • chopped cilantro
  • lime wedges, etc.

Instructions :

  • Begin by gently bathing your chicken breasts with olive oil, ensuring they’re generously coated. This not only imparts an extra layer of richness but also aids in absorbing the vibrant flavors from our seasoning.
  • Blend your ranch seasoning with chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. This concoction of spices and herbs will enchant your chicken with an irresistibly zesty and smoky flavor profile.
  • Gently lay your seasoned chicken in the crockpot and graciously pour the chicken broth over it. The broth will tenderly envelop the poultry, ensuring it remains splendidly moist and absorbs all the exquisite flavors during its slow-cooking journey.
  • Allow your chicken to leisurely bask in the slow cooker on low heat for about 4 hours. This unhurried transformation will ensure every fiber of the chicken is imbued with the spellbinding flavors and becomes magnificently tender.
  • Once your chicken has experienced its flavorful metamorphosis, gently shred it using two forks. The meat should pull apart effortlessly, a testament to its succulent perfection.
  • On your soft taco shells, lovingly heap generous portions of your beautifully shredded chicken. Now, adorn your tacos with your chosen toppings, allowing the crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, creamy sour cream, and vibrant cilantro to beautifully contrast the savory chicken.
  • Embrace your culinary creation and take a moment to savor every vibrant note, every rich texture, and every hearty flavor as you bite into your homemade Ranch Chicken Taco.

Cooking Tips :

  • Feel empowered to explore with your seasoning! Add a dash of cumin for an extra warm, earthy flavor, or perhaps a sprinkle of cayenne for a cheeky, spicy kick.
  • For our vegetarian friends, consider replacing chicken with a hearty alternative like portobello mushrooms or jackfruit, which beautifully mimic the texture and absorb the flavors brilliantly.
  • Warm your taco shells slightly before assembling to enhance their flavor and make them pliable, preventing any unexpected taco casualties!
  • Employ a rainbow of fresh veggies and a variety of cheeses for your toppings, ensuring each bite is a kaleidoscope of flavors and textures.
  • Experiment with different salsas and sauces! From zesty pico de gallo to smoky chipotle sauce, let your tacos be a canvas for your culinary creativity.
