Slow cooker chicken taco & potato casserole

October 11, 2020

I’m a potato girl at heart, any dish with potatoes in it I’m all in! I wanted a simple slow cooker meal that took little prep time and I could just let it do it’s thing while I worked. This chicken taco & potato casserole was delicious and the leftovers were even better! It only takes about 15 minutes to prep, you can easily add in some extra zero smart point veggies of your liking and it made such a hearty meal to enjoy on a cool fall night. Makes 8- 1 cup servings, 2SP on purple, 4SP on blue and 5SP on green.

Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
5SP green, 4SP blue, 2SP purple per 1 cup serving
Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1.5lb mini potatoes (680G- approx 4 cups) I used mini white- sliced
  • 1 cup diced peppers
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 1 can low fat cream of chicken soup- 284ml
  • 1 packet taco seasoning-24g
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese
Instructions
  1. Cook the ground chicken in a frying pan on the stove over medium heat.
  2. Slice the mini potatoes, you can either slice or dice them, either way is fine, I went with slicing them.
  3. Turn slow cooker on to high, layer potatoes on the bottom of the dish.
  4. Top the potatoes with the cooked ground chicken, add peppers, onions and garlic. Then top with the cream of chicken soup, broth, seasoning mix and cheese. *Feel free to add in some corn, I am personally not a big fan but it would be a great addition. *Also feel free to swap out the chicken for turkey and keep the points the same, and you could also double the chicken/turkey if you want to bulk it up more, for blue & purple this would not change the points, if you do double up then I suggest adding another ½-1 cup of broth.
  5. Stir well- cook on high about 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours, once potatoes are cooked through it is done. Makes 8- 1 cup servings, store in fridge, this recipe will freeze well.

    How about making this in the oven?

      Hi Lydia, yes I think it would bake ok in the oven, I’d check it about an hour in, and at 400F, the potatoes are what will take the longest .. but still cook your ground chicken first

    This looks delicious. You mentioned adding vegetables to this to bulk up. My favorite add in is yellow squash. I shred it into so many main dishes with sauce to bulk them up.

    You have 1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese, is that cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese or it doesn’t matter what kind of cheese you add?

    Is the chicken a 99% fat free one (meaning Zero WW points on blue/purple) or is it just regular ground chicken? I can’t find the zero point ground chicken anywhere near me!!

      Hi Dawn, honestly I buy what I can find and go with it… I always say I’m not on WW because of 95% ground chicken lol

    Hi! What ground chicken did you enter in to the WW recipe builder for your calculations for Blue? Was it a brand name or fat percentage? A 4 point meal sounds fabulous!
