Slow Cooker Asada Verde Chicken Tacos

Updated: Apr 1, 2023

That was a long title. I could have just said chicken tacos or slow cooker chicken. Oh well. My oven has been on the fritz so I've turned to recipes for my slow cooker.


Substitutions:

You can use any combination of chicken, I just happen to have boneless skinless thighs and a breast

This can also be done in a pressure cooker on high for 15 minutes

If you don't like pineapple but still want the sweetness, just use 1/2 cup pineapple juice instead

I made tacos with the chicken but you could put this on a salad, or just buy taco shells.



Step 1: Combine chicken, salsa, pineapple, jalapeño and red onions in crock pot.




Step 2: Cook on high for 4-5 hours.


Step 3: Remove chicken and shred. Place back into crock pot with sauce and stir.




Step 4: Rub outside of tortilla with olive oil to coat and place on baking sheet oil-side down. Fill half tortilla with chicken and cheese.



Step 5: Bake at 425 for 6-7 minutes and then flip. Bake other side for 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.




Makes 8-10 servings
