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.

Slow cooker chicken taco & potato casserole

Drizzle
5SP green, 4SP blue, 2SP purple per 1 cup serving
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 5 hrs
Total Time 5 hrs 15 mins
Course Main meals
Servings 8

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1.5 lb mini potatoes 680G- approx 4 cups I used mini white- sliced
  • 1 cup diced peppers
  • 1/2 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
 

  • Cook the ground chicken in a frying pan on the stove over medium heat.
  • Slice the mini potatoes, you can either slice or dice them, either way is fine, I went with slicing them.
  • Turn slow cooker on to high, layer potatoes on the bottom of the dish.
  • 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 1/2-1 cup of broth.
  • 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.

      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

  1. 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.

  2. You have 1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese, is that cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese or it doesnโ€™t matter what kind of cheese you add?

      Hi Shannon, it is really up to you which you use, I typically buy a 3 cheese blend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Is the chicken a 99% fat free one (meaning Zero WW points on blue/purple) or is it just regular ground chicken? I canโ€™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

  4. 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!

      Hi Tracy, I just enter fat-free ground chicken, hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Hi,

    This looks amazing! Do you think this could be cooked in an instant pot?

      Hi Lindsay, I would think so, I, however, do not own an IP so I’m not too sure about the cooking time

    • Drizzle Reply

      You could try another creamy soup other than that I’m not too sure, It is hard to come up with an alternative as I don’t know the outcome of the recipe as I only know it the way the recipe states

  6. Could you use cooked shredded chicken breast instead of ground chicken? Thatโ€™s one thing I canโ€™t get everyone in my house to eat. It sounds amazing.

      Hi Misty, I haven’t tried it myself but I don’t see why not.. also I get the ground chicken issues, I use to never eat it lol but I’ve come to actually really enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I didnโ€™t end up with 8 1-cup servings? I followed the recipe to a T. ๐Ÿค”

      Hmm, that’s strange, you should definitely have the 8 cups, I mean just look at the number of ingredients.. 4 cups of potatoes, the can of soup, cup of broth, cup of diced veggies and the ground chicken, it should easily yield 8 cups once cooked, sorry not sure how you didn’t get it

    I just made this. It is in the slow cooker right now canโ€™t wait to try it, it looks so good.

  9. I made this and it was a huge hit!! It came out a little extra soupy. I think next time I will decrease some of the broth. But other then that it was delicious!! Thanks for all your recipes!!!

      Hi Tracy, I am so glad you enjoyed it, sorry it was too soupy but yes decreasing the broth will help, mine was quite thick but maybe different slow cookers could cause that??

  10. I really enjoyed this recipe…so filling. i think next time, i am going to try shredded chicken breast, and add a small can of green chili’s..yum
    thanks for the recipe! ๐Ÿ™‚ .
