Rub chicken breasts with oil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker, and add all of the remaining ingredients. Cook on high for 2-4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours or until chicken is tender enough to shred.
Remove chicken to a cutting board, and let rest 5 minutes before shredding (there will be liquid remaining). Return shredded chicken and let cook on low for an additional 20 minutes to absorb some of the liquid/juices. Taste and add some chili if you like a bit of spice.
Serve your tacos with tortilla wraps (or lettuce cups for a carb free version), sour cream, chopped jalapenos, cheese and the avocado mango salsa.
