When it’s too hot to turn on the stove we normally grill … but it’s been 110 degrees all week and who wants to stand in front of a 400 degree grill in that mess. So I pulled out the good old crock pot today and made some delicious chicken. This is probably my new favorite recipe.
4-6 Chicken Breasts
1 can of chipotle peppers in adobo
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 can of Cherry Coke Zero
1/4 cup of Brown Sugar (or Splenda Brown Sugar)
1 tablespoon of Cocoa Powder
Quarter the onion and spread it out around the bottom of your crock pot, lay the chicken breasts over the onions and throw in the chopped garlic. Dump in the can of chipotle peppers and the brown sugar, cocoa and pour in the can of cherry coke.
set on low for 4-5 hours. When done carefully pull out the breasts and shred with a fork
I served this with sour cream, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, cherry tomatoes and flour tortillas. Delicious.
