Friday, April 30, 2021

I dont know about you but even in a pandemic my life is BUSY. I struggle to make good delicious dinners because by time it rolls around to 6PM and my work day is done last thing I wanna do is cook. This chicken recipe is easy, take very little time to prep and it cooks while you work.
What you will need
5-6 chicken breast/tights
3 dried guajillo peppers see notes
2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
5 cloves garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 medium onion chopped
2 cups chicken stock
Side of choice: rice, salad etc.
How to make it:
Heat up 1 cup of chicken stock so its warm (but not boiling). 
In a blender or a cup: put dried peppers, oregano, paprika and cumin. Pour over the warm chicken stock and let sit for about 10 min.
Preheat the oven to 350.
In a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add 1-2 tbsp oil, then sauté the onions and chopped garlic until golden and translucent, reduce heat and pour the vinegar into the pot and stir.
Season chickens with salt and pepper.
In the blended (with mixture you had sitting) add crushed tomatoes, chipotle papers and blend.
Add chicken to the pot, pour over the blended mixture and remaining chicken stock.
Cook for 3 to 3.5 hours.
