Hi there! I spiced things up a bit in my kitchen yesterday and discovered this recipe *ain't no Taco Bell*. This super easy and deeply flavored chicky was a welcome treat for the bored tastebuds on a harsh and frigid night. The sauce had fire, but the good earthy kind, not the heat kind and I guarantee you couldn't get a better meal at an authentic Mexican casa. I followed the recipe, but used 3 breasts (was plenty), added 1 cup jar salsa, a few generous shakes of sweet chili pepper, a can of chipotle peppers in sauce (roughly chopped) and let it cook all day ~ while I stitched:)
When done I roughly shredded the chicky in the crock. I wanted to thicken the sauce, so I used a little drizzle of cornstarch/water slurry in the crockpot, pouring a little in at a time and stirring til it thickened nicely and served over a bed of white rice. The sauce soaked into the rice and well, you can just imagine... I could barely force myself to share even a morsel and kept telling DH if he didn't care for it that I'd make him something else and send the chicky to the freezer. He gobbled it down. I would not hesitate for a moment to serve this to company or take it anywhere in my trusty crock. This was such a welcome addition to my crockpot specialties, I couldn't help but mention it here, in case any of you are looking to spice things up a bit in your own kitchen:)
