The best tomatillo chicken in the slow-cooker for tacos and burritos

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time8 hrs
Total Time8 hrs 10 mins


  • 2 lbs tomatillos with husk removed and quartered
  • 1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • cumin
  • chicken bullion
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt


  • Place 1-2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast on the bottom of the slow-cooker, then the tomatillos.
  • Over the chicken, I put a chicken bullion cube, some cumin, garlic powder, salt and onion powder. If you like numbers, 2 teaspoons of cumin, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic and onion powder (or use the real ones if that’s your thing).
  • Turn on that slow-cooker for about 8 hours on low.
