  • Slow Cooker


Taco Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup Harry & David® salsa
  • 12 yellow or white corn tortillas (for serving)
  • queso fresco cheese (crumbled, for serving)

Citrus Salsa Ingredients

  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 Harry & David® HoneyBell Oranges ( or another sweet citrus, segmented and chopped)
  • 1 avocado (chopped)
  • 3 tablespoons red onion (diced )
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro (chopped )
  • pinch salt
  • pinch pepper
  • lime juice (freshly squeezed)


  • Place the chicken in your slow cooker and season it with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the salsa on top. Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours. Whichever setting, cook until the chicken easily shreds with a fork.
  • For the citrus salsa, combine everything together in a bowl and mix. Let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
  • To assemble the tacos, warm the tortillas (in the oven or microwave, whichever you prefer) and fill them with a few tablespoons of the chicken.
  • Top with the citrus salsa and queso fresco cheese. Serve immediately.
