Jack recently prepared a wonderful Mexican-themed dinner for us, and this Pulled Chicken recipe played a starring role in several of the dishes he made. The chicken is perfectly flavored with a spicy blend of tomato and peppers as well as other seasonings, and it’s cooked until fork-tender and then shredded.
A good pulled chicken is a great recipe to have in your collection. It can be eaten as-is or as part of a sandwich, or it can be used in many recipes such as quesadillas, enchiladas, burritos, Mexican lasagna, or chimichangas. The key is to use a mix of white and dark meat in this recipe (we used a combination of boneless chicken thighs and breasts) – and the thigh meat lends so much more flavor and juiciness to the finished dish than using the breast meat alone.
