OC Trainer Mexican Stewed Chicken Chile

OC Trainer Mexican Stewed Chicken Chile
(we do this in a crockpot, but you can do it on the stove or oven as well.. just simmer at the lowest setting possible)

 

Into the crockpot, put:

  • 2 medium onions roughly chopped
  • 2 red bell pepper roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 4 Tbl ground chile powder (make sure its fresh!)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • (optional) 1/8 – 1/4 ground red pepper if you like it hotter

Layer in 8 whole, skinless and boneless chicken breasts.

Add 1 24oz jar of your favorite salsa (I think the Safeway Select Chipotle – makes it really smokey, spicy and good –  or Safeway Select Fire Roasted are the best). Dont be tempted to add water if it looks dry; it will all melt together when it cooks. Gently stir all ingredients together to coat chicken.

Cover crockpot, cook on high 6 hours, then let it sit until you are ready; Your chicken breasts will gently start to fall apart.. thats the whole idea.. its like shredded chicken with a great chile flavor.

We love this served over a portion of Trader Joe’s Rice Medley, doused with Cholula hot sauce and a sprinkle of low fat mexican cheese… finish with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and you have a totally healthy, quick meal.
