The chicken is extremely tender and a bit spicy, so a bowl of cilantro-spiked shredded cabbage, carrot, and zucchini—dressed with a little olive oil and mild vinegar—is a perfect accompaniment.


  1. Place chicken thighs in 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Mix salsa, onion, potato, garlic, broth, and cumin together; pour over chicken.

  2. Cover and cook on LOW heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Cook to internal temp of 165°F.

  3. Shred chicken thighs. Stir back into salsa mixture; serve hot over crisp tostada shells with desired condiments.


Warm corn or flour tortillas may be substituted for crisp tostada shells.

A small bowl of vegetable slaw would provide some texture and crunch to these simple tostadas.
