Hmm it would seem life has gotten away on me, its been a while since my last post! Mr Not-quite-2 is now Mr 2 and with that came a Birthday Party full of sugar! Back on the wagon now though and a week of wholesome meals awaits!
Something quick for in the Slowcooker tonight, delicious Smokey Spicy Chicken shredded in a rich Sauce. I throw together some Crunchy Corn Thins to go with it as dippers but you could wrap yours in a Lettuce Leaf or just eat it from a bowl with a fork!
You will need:
2 Free Range Chicken Breasts
1 Tin Organic Tomatoes
1 Tin of either Refried Beans, Kidney Beans or Black Beans or make your own Refried Beans
3/4 of a small tin of Chipotle Salsa (I use La Morena Brand, its preservative free) or you could just add some Dried Chipotles or any Chillies you like. Alternatively you can leave this out if you’re not big on heat but you should up the Smoked Paprika to 1 Tbsp so you don’t miss out of the Smoked Flavour
1 Small Onion – Diced
3 Garlic Cloves – Crushed, Peeled, Diced
1 Tbsp Dried Oregano
1/2 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
1 Tsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Dried Parsley
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes
Good Grind of Sea Salt and Pepper
So easy! Just throw your Chicken Breast into the Slowcooker. Mix remaining ingredients in a hug and then pour over your Chicken. Cook on High for 4 hours or Low for 8. Once cooked use 2 Forks to shred your Chicken in the Slowcooker and give it a good mix.
Serve in a bowl topped with Grated Cheese, Sour Cream, Avocado, Extra Chipotle Salsa the list goes on! Or wrap it up in a Lettuce Leaf as a Burrito, wrap it up in a Tortilla pour over some extra Chipotle Salsa and bake in the oven as Enchiladas, maybe next to some Cauiflower Rice…..
