Shredded Chipotle Chicken in a Crockpot

22 Sep


  • 1 whole chicken, quartered (cut out and remove the back bone, then cut into 4 pieces)
  • 2 Tb all-purpose meat seasoning, (I get mine from “The Old Fashioned Butcher Shoppe” here in Evansville)
  • 1 Tb Cumin
  • 2 tsp Mexican Oregano, ground
  • 1 tsp Thyme, ground
  • 4 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, diced
  • 1 cup chicken broth, (I use “Das Dutchman Esenhaus Chicken Base”)

Combine all dry spices and rub chicken pieces thoroughly. Place in a gallon ziplock bag, add the Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, mix well and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. I marinate them overnight. Using a crock pot, add the marinated chicken thighs, pour the chicken broth over them. Cook on low all day. Remove meat from bones if it hasn’t already fallen off. Discard bones and skin.

Suggestions: Use this flavorful shredded chicken in your tacos, enchiladas, tamales, casseroles and even chicken pot pie.

    Boy that sounds good. All purpose meat seasoning. I have been looking for it in my area. I guess I will have to search the intertubes for it or a recipe for it. Thanks for sharing.

      I think Mrs. Dash is an all-purpose meat seasoning. Most butcher shops carry one under their own name. Basically, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a little paprika.

      Glad you liked the recipe. This one was a bit hard for me. I had been making it all my life, but never paid any attention to measurements. LOL it’s so different cooking for your family and friends versus cooking for a recipe blog. LOL
