After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.
I'm always looking for new slow cooker recipes and receive a lot of feedback from readers that you're also looking for more. So I took this Chipotle Chicken Recipe from Homesick Texan and threw it into my slow cooker. Once again, it was great to come home to a delicious dinner.
Making the chipotle sauce means that this recipe takes a little more leg work than just dumping ingredients into your slow cooker, but it's well worth the effort.
3/4 cup chicken broth
1-3/4 cup crushed canned tomatoes
3 chipotles in adobo, plus 2 tablespoons of adobo sauce
1/2 medium yellow onion, cut into large chunks
5 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground all spice
1/4 cup cilantro
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
tortila shells, for garnish
tomatillo salsa, for garnish (can make your own or purchase at the store)
avocado for garnish
Combine first 13 ingredients (from chicken broth to ground black pepper) in blender and blend into chipotle sauce.
Place chicken in slow cooker and top with chipotle sauce blend. Cook in slow cooker on low for 6 hours.
Serve in tortillas with tomatillo salsa and avocado.
