This Mexican Pulled Chicken over rice with fresh pico de gallo is the ultimate comfort food.
This Mexican Pulled Chicken is a little on the spicy side and that is because we are slow cooking it in some mexican green chile sauce which contains jalapenos. So if you are paring this with homemade pico de gallo (salsa fresca).I would advise to omit the jalapenos in the salsa since the chicken has enough heat it it already. But do not worry, it’s not too hot due to the addition of the chile adobo which give it a sweet smoky flavor as well.
Pair this dish with some full fat sour cream and you will have a more mellowed out dish. So if you like Mexican food just as much as me, then I’m more than certain this will become one of your new favorites.
Personally I can handle the extra heat, that is why I made my pico de gallo with jalapenos in it. As you may know I really love spicy food, however my partner leans more towards sweet stuff and said he would prefer the pico de gallo to have no jalapenos in for this pairing. This recipe is super easy to make, and packed with full of flavor so follow along.
All we are doing here is simply placing our chicken breasts into the slow cooker, along with 1/2 cup of mexican green chili sauce, a few adobo chilies, some chicken stock and our seasonings. Then we are allowing it to simmer on medium to low heat all day, only to return to shred the chicken with two forks.
Then placing back into the pot to simmer/brown for a few minutes to allow the sauce to thicken up some. This dish is so tasty and is my new favorite way to eat pulled chicken. Serve over a bed of jasmine rice, along with homemade pico de gallo and you will be in flavor heaven.
The nice thing about mexican food is that you can make a lot of it in a short period, and you can store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. I hope you enjoy, ARRIBA MEXICO!
