How to make it

  • Start off by sauteeing the onion, garlic and cilantro in a bit of oil for about 5 mins. I do this in my stock pot, so as to give everything enough room to cook.
  • Leave the chicken whole and add to the onions etc.
  • Cover and allow to cook until the chicken is cooked all the way thru (at least 30 mins)
  • When the chicken is done, remove it from the pot and allow to rest for about 15 mins.
  • While the chicken rests, add the bell peppers, green chili and salsa to the onion/garlic/cilantro mixture.
  • When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred it and throw back into the pot and cook for an additional 10 mins.
  • Slow Cooker Directions:
  • Start the chicken, onions, garlic and cilantro together on low for at least 3 hours. Add the green chili, salsa and bell pepper and cook for another 1-2 hours on low before serving. About 30 mins before service, take the chicken out and shread it and add it back into the salsa etc, making sure that all is evenly coated and heated thru.
  • Serve with tortillias, cheese and beans. This also is great the next day for leftovers!

    Made this last night. Mine turned out pretty 'soupy' so it was a bit messy served in the soft tacos. I used the show cooker method. I'd play around with the recipe before I'd make it again but it was fun to try. I'll put it down to 'user error'. More in IMI.
