DID YOU KNOW. Monday October 4th is National Taco Day!! What better reason to join our host, Wendy from A Day In The Life on The Farm in making and sharing some DELICIOUS taco recipes!

This recipe is shredded BBQ chicken sandwich meets taco - it is the best of both and a fun way to change up your taco routine! I suppose you could also call it a "wrap", but I'm calling it a taco...! 

The filling is really tasty - you can use really any flavor of bbq you like best, but the honey bbq adds a nice sweet / spicy combination with the salsa mixed in, and lends itself to going really nicely with a fruity salsa on top for a little extra heat or flavor. 

Get inspired! See all of our Taco-Sunday recipes:

Honey BBQ Chicken Tacos

4 large chicken thighs (bone in, skin-on is fine)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 18-oz bottle Honey BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
1 15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-oz can corn, drained
1/2 cup salsa

To serve
Shredded cheddar cheese, or cotija cheese
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes
Fruity mango or apple salsa

  1. Combine chicken and broth in a slow cooker; cook on high for about 4 hours until chicken is easily shredded.
  2. Remove chicken from crockpot, and turn off heat. Set chicken aside on a plate or cutting board until it's cool enough to handle.
  3. Discard the skin and bones, shred the meat and return the meat to the crock pot. Turn heat to low.
  4. Add in the bbq sauce, corn, and black beans.
  5. Cook until well heated through - about another hour.
  6. Stir in the salsa. Taste, and adjust bbq / salsa if needed.
  7. Serve the bbq chicken filling in tortillas, topped with your preferred cheese and toppings such as shredded lettuce and diced tomato. Top with a fruity salsa like mango or apple salsa if desired!

Recipe adapted from The Cookie Rookie


  1. Sounds great Rebekah and easily adapted to use leftover chicken. Making tacos out of leftovers is one of my standard go tos.

  2. Those sound delicious! love the idea of bbq sauce for a Tex Mex slant.

  3. These look so good. I wouldn't have thought to dress with a BBQ sauce. Sounds amazing.
