Recipes Notes for Crockpot Chicken Tacos with Salsa

I prefer to use raw chicken breast instead of cooked chicken breast in this specific recipe, but when I’m feeling a little bit lazy, I prefer to throw in pre-cooked frozen chicken breast strips into the crockpot and avoid the 4 hours of cooking of this delicious recipe, but the taste and freshness are never the same.
