Korean BBQ Chicken Tacos

Tacos. What can we say about tacos? They are amazing, and so very versatile!! Gone are the days when you are stuck with just ground beef and some cheese, though there is nothing wrong with those either!!!

A few weeks ago I ordered Korean BBQ Street Tacos from a food truck menu and knew that I was going to have to recreate the meal at home! This is so easy, just a dump in the crock pot and go kind of meal!

Korean BBQ Chicken Tacos


3 chicken breasts

1 jar of hoisin sauce

2/3 cup honey

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon ginger

flour or corn tortillas

Asian Vegetable Mix (or a slaw mix and green onions)

Asian Vegetable Blend


Mix the hoisin sauce, honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, and ginger.

Place chicken in the crockpot on low and cover with the mixture. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Shred the chicken and spoon the mix on to your tortilla and top with Asian slaw.


So delicious!!! I served mine with carrot fries. I will be sharing that recipe next week! It would taste great over rice or with stir fry veggies as well! What meal have you re-created at home?

    Can’t wait to try this! I love any kind of non-beef tacos, and you can’t beat stuff you can cook in the crock pot!

    Making these, making these, making these. I LOVE Hoisin sauce. Maybe I’ll replace the wraps with some lettuce leaves for the grain free thing…

    We have a cheer competition on Sunday so if I can get my husband to follow the directions and put this in the crockpot while I’m doing hair and makeup, we’ll have lunch when we get home (early morning report time). I love new recipes, and I really love crockpot ones for comp days. Less stress AND saves money. Two of my favorite qualities.

    I’m such a terrible chef — wth is hoisin sauce? This is the first time I’ve heard of this– but apparently it makes things delicious, so I will have to find it. I can’t wait for this carrot fries recipe!

    stupid question, these don’t have bbq sauce in them? that is awesome because i hate bbq sauce and i have basically all the ingredients for these at home already. high five! pinning it so i can make it.

    We’re doing shrimp tacos tonight, since Publix had shrimp BOGO going on, but I will have to try this one. I’ve made so many Korean tacos lately, and they’re a big hit.

    Those salad blends are such a time saver! And crockpots! I’ll try just about anything I can make in a crockpot. Sounds delish- I’ll need to try this one out soon!
