Tips And Tricks For Making Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken
Doubling. I wrote this for 1 pound of meat because many of us can’t finish several pounds of meat at once. But you can always double or triple the recipe. Just leave the water to 1 cup if you double the recipe.
Freezing. You can freeze the leftovers along with some of the cooking liquid to keep it moist when defrosting.
Pressure Cooker. To make this in the pressure cooker, reduce water to 1/4 cup. Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes, and allow the pot to rest undisturbed for 10 minutes. Then, release all remainin pressure.
Chipotle Chicken Serving Suggestions
Salad: Use the cooking liquid as a dressing. You may choose to use romaine lettuce, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, chopped red onions, and cilantro.
Tacos: Wrap in corn or four tortillas with chopped red onions and cilantro.
Over Rice: Cook brown rice pot in pot in the same pot as the meat cooks.
