Maple Chipotle Pulled Chicken

By Foodie Gone Paleo


Ingredients:

3 lbs Chicken (I used a combo of thighs and breasts)

2 Chipotles

1/2 cup Adobo sauce 

1/2 cup Maple Syrup

1 tsp Chili powder

1 tsp Cumin

Salt & Pepper


Optional:

Extra sauce:

1 Chipotle

1/4 cup Adobo

1/3 cup Maple syrup

1/4 cup Chicken stock


Directions:

Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, place in the bottom of your crockpot.  

In a blender combine the rest of the ingredients and 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.  Blend until smooth.  Pour mixture over chicken and toss to coat all pieces evenly.  Cook on Low for 7 hours.  After 7 hours, remove chicken and shred with two forks.  Place chicken back in crockpot for another hour to soak up all the juices.  If chicken is too watery, remove lid for the last 30-45 minutes.  During the last hour, make some extra sauce (optional), in a small pot combine all ingredients and simmer on low until thickened.  Keep warm.

Assemble chicken over a bed of lettuce and top with extra sauce and cole slaw.  Enjoy!
