Shredded Mexican Chicken

Scale

Ingredients

SAUCE TO POUR OVER CHICKEN:

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees
  2. Layer the onions and peppers in the bottom of a glass 9 x 13 dish and place the chicken on top
  3. In a medium saucepan add all the ingredients for the sauce and bring to a boil. Stir and remove
  4. Carefully pour it over the chicken and cover first with parchment paper, then alum foil. (The parchment paper keeps the tomato sauce from reacting with the aluminum)
  5. Place the dish in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 2 hours 45 minutes
  6. The chicken will absolutely fall apart at this point. Shred and set aside
  7. Drain some of the extra liquid from the dish and return the chicken to the pan
  8. Refrigerate for a later use or use immediately
