I am always looking for new ways to jazz up simple meals! I have said it before and I will say it again, I would rather be doing anything but cooking! So to support my healthy lifestyle, I have had to find easy flavorful meals to keep us on the straight and narrow. Here is one of our current go to chicken recipes. It delicious on its own but we usually throw it in salads or make tacos or flautas or sometimes even make a mexican pizza with a corn tortilla, refried beans, and some cheese! I warn you know: this IS a spicy recipe in case the ingredients don't clue you in!
6 skinless chicken thighs ( or three chicken breasts but I prefer for the darker meat for this dish)
2 cans of adobo chipotle peppers
1 jalapeno ( deseeded)
1/4 cup canned pineapple with juice. ( crushed or chunks)
2 cloves of garlic
2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
1/4 chicken broth
After chicken is fully cook you will need:
1/4 cup of honey
In a crock pot, combine all of the ingredients for the chicken and cook on high for 4 hours. One the chicken is thoroughly cooked, remove it from the broth and shred it with forks. It should fall apart easily. Preheat the oven to broil on the LOW setting while you shred the chicken. Once the chicken is shredded, line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spread the chicken even across the sheet. Then take the honey and drizzle it over the chicken evenly. Place in the oven and cook for about 5 minutes or until the honey thickens and the chicken begins to turn golden brown.
And done! Take your delicious chicken and get creative! It is super delicious in a salad if you have trouble eating your veggies or use it to jazz up you favorite Mexican dish! :)
