This dish was inspired when I was looking for a quick and easy meal that could feed a lot of people - my current go to dish if I'm having a party or going to one is to make a crock pot of Paleo friendly pulled pork. If you're going to a non-paleo place you can bring along some small rolls and you can eat your pork and know that it's 100% Paleo and everyone is content. I've been on a Mexican kick lately, had just bought a family pack of chicken and decided that I would tackle creating a slow cooked shredded chicken dish.
What I put in the crock pot (other than the chicken)
8 chicken breasts
1 large onion
1 large red pepper2 large green peppers1 jar of Trader Joe's Salsa Verde1 can of diced tomatoes (no sugar added!)2 - 3 tsp Mexican chili powder2 - 3 tsp Cumin2-3 tsp Paprika1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)Sprinkle of red pepper falkes (optional)Salt & PepperThe result, slow cooked for 6 hours on low and created some delicious shredded chicken! It has a bit of heat, if you're not a cayenne pepper person you can sub a mild hot pepper or some red pepper flakes instead. I'm sensitive to cayenne and felt like this packed a little heat, but others that ate it thought it was delicious!
What dinner looked like the first night
I ate it along with a plate full of sauteed kale, but you could also eat these in lettuce wraps. If you do dairy, some cheese on top would have been delicious, also a bit of guacamole or diced avocado on top would be a nice cooling complement to the slight heat of the Mexican chicken.
