We are the kind of people that could eat chicken every night and tonight was a no exception it was a slow cooker fiesta chicken night!

I called it fiesta chicken because of the the mix of the spices i used, this mix of spices added the most delicious mild spiced flavor!

This recipe is so easy to make, i used some of the chicken right out of the freezer, i had two pieces that I defrosted overnight in the fridge…I was thinking to grill them and to use as a topping on a salad but I changed my mind since I was on a mission to get my garage cleaned today!

Do you smell the aroma!! Ahhhhh Yummmm

5 boneless skinless chicken breast

1/2 tbsp sea salt

1 cup of water

1 cinnamon stick

1 tbsp dehydrated onion

1 tbsp dehydrated garlic

1/2 tbsp onion powder

1/4 tsp dry thyme

1/2 tbsp ground coriander

1/4 tbsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp hot chili powder

1/4 tbsp ground paprika

1/2 tbsp ground achiote pepper

1/2 tbsp ground pasilla chili

1/4 tsp all spice

2 chipotle adobados peppers

1 small can green chili sauce (mild)

Cilantro leaves for garnish

Add the chicken to the slow cooker, add water and all the spices, add the green chili sauce, adobados peppers and the cinnamon stick.

Cover and cook on high for four hours, after two hours left the cover and mix the chicken well with the spices, cover and continue cooking!

For my plate I served it with a mix of green salad with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar dressing, and for my husband I served it with vegetable tartars (he likes them a lot )!

this dish could be easily served with all the delicious tacos or burritos fixing but we chose the lighter version for tonight dinner!

Enjoy!!
