In a mixing bowl, combine tomato, cilantro, ½ cup onion (reserve remaining for arroz con pollo), lime juice, 1 tsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside, stirring a few times to allow flavors to marry. Pat diced chicken thighs dry.

Combine chicken, remaining onion, tomato sauce, corn, seasoning blend, ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper in a clean slow cooker. Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4 hours.
