This Easy Slow Cooker Taco Chicken and Rice is the easiest dinner to make! The entire dinner is in your slow cooker! I usually include a vegetable side or salad and that is it! This is one of my favorite simple dishes we make, sometimes served with cheese! Sometimes I even shred the chicken and throw the contents into a tortilla or taco shell with some cheese as well! With this dish you do have options!
