Crock Pot Caribbean Jerk Chicken Tacos

This was a fun twist on traditional tacos. Both my husband and I love Jerk Chicken and I figured what not make it for tacos. It's such an easy meal to put together. I topped mine with a homemade citrus salsa and then end result was amazing!

Crock Pot Caribbean Jerk Chicken Tacos
Makes 10 Tacos
Cal 82.5, Carbs 10.5, Fat 0.7, Fiber 1g, Protein 8.2

16oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used tenders)
1/2 cup Lawry’s Caribbean Jerk Marinade
2-3 Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
Corn tortillas
Queso Fresco Cheese, Green Onions or any other toppings if desired.

Season chicken with red pepper flakes and place in crock pot. Cover chicken with marinade and cook on low for 4 hours. Shred and assemble tacos with desired toppings. Enjoy!

  1. When should I be over for dinner?

  2. Can you tell me what level of heat would this be if I didn't use red pepper flakes, just the marinade? We are usually in the mild range and I don't know if this would be too spicy. Thanks, Sandra from

    1. Sandra,
      If you were to omit the red pepper flakes you should be okay. I find that the marinade itself is fairly mild. Hope you enjoy!

  3. I need to buy a crockpot! Thanks for remind me why!
