Chicken Carnitas with Fiesta Sauce

Chicken Carnitas with Fiesta Sauce

By Trainer Sarah


1 Jar Salsa (10-12 oz)

3 Bell Peppers, Quartered

4 Cloves Garlic, Whole

1 Yellow Onion, Quartered

3 Tbs. Organic Salted Butter

2 Tbs. Taco Seasoning

½ tsp. Chipotle Pepper

1 lb. Raw Chicken Breast



1. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours (really, that’s it!)

2. Take the chicken out of the crockpot, and shred on a cutting board with two forks

3. Carefully pour the remaining liquid from the slow cooker into a blender (or ladle with a slotted spoon if you prefer a thicker consistency) and blend until completely smooth. If desired, add ½ cup half n’ half to the mixture for a creamier sauce.

4. Serve shredded chicken with fiesta sauce along with these possible (ahem, delectable) additions: black beans, lettuce, jasmine rice, flour or corn tortilla, fresh herbs (basil or cilantro), corn, sour cream, cheese, or whatever you have around the house. I promise this recipe will not disappoint!!
