We first learned about this recipe from our cousin who lives in Mexico… this is some of the best food you will ever taste. You can just double everything if you need to make for more than say 4 people.

Chipotle Chicken


  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 6-8 carrots
  • 2-3 onions (white or yellow)
  • 10-12 Tomatillos
  • 1 block of chicken boullion
  • 1 can of Chipotle peppers (recommended brand is Embasa)
  • bay leaves
  • virgin olive oil

Prep the veggies by chopping into very small pieces and put into separate bowls, you want to have each vegetable element all the same amount in each bowl. Boil about 4 quarts of water with chicken breasts, 1/4 onion, and about 5-6 bay leaves. Boil for about 1 hour to make sure chicken is cooked very well. Take out the chicken, you will need the broth later. Shred the chicken very finely. In a blender put about 2 cups of chicken broth, 1 block of chicken boullion, and as much chipotle peppers as you like (best taste is usually around 3 peppers and most of the liquid sauce in the can).

Take a very large sauce-type pan and put in a layer of olive oil. Cook on medium high and add chopped onion, cook onion until it is translucent. Next add the chopped carrots and cook a bit longer, then finally add the tomatillo. Cook the vegetables for approximately 10 minutes, then add the shredded chicken. Now add in the blended chipotle pepper mix and stir. Cover sauce pan with lid or foil and cook on low heat for about 20-30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so.

Then serve with either tortilla chips (like a dip) or use with tortillas or taco shells. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Please post your responses after you have made this dish so we can know how much you like it.
