This was just okay for me. The only thing I did differently was to use chicken with bones (could not find any boneless thighs) and deboned it at the same time I shredded it. Did not have any chipotle seasoning so I substituted cayenne. Everything else was done exactly according to the recipe. I was afraid it would be too spicy but it turned out very watery and was actually not spicy enough. With all of the excess liquid I could barely taste the other flavors. It definitely took longer than 5 1/2 hours but that could have been due to my slow cooker. I had to turn it up on high for a couple more hours for the chicken to get done enough to shred. Not sure what I did wrong but it was a little bit of a disappointment especially with so many giving such good reviews.
The simpleness of the recipe makes it quite appealing. With most recipes it helps to add personal touches and this one is no different. I used the smoked chipotle peppers in adobo sauce instead of the green chiles and I added my favorite spices (including Mrs. Dash regular and chipotle blends onion and garlic powders and a seasoned salt) to give it just the right zing. I topped the sauce off with a splash of beer and it came out perfect. Loved it and will make again!
NOT at all BBQ I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with spicy Italian-tasting chicken. I thought the ingredients sounded a bit tomato-heavy but thought the honey and vinegar might create a more BBQ flavor. This is NOT BBQ just tomato-y chicken.
Not BBQ I ended up with a very soup like chicken that tasted more mexican. We ended up straining the chicken and putting it on tortilla wraps and ate them as soft tacos Cons: Very running more like mexican chicken
Very good w/ an adjustment... Very good dish and super easy!!! The sauce was a little plain for me and I missed that tangy BBQ sauce flavor so I added some of my favorite BBQ sauce to the mix I also roasted a fresh Poblano pepper instead of using the can of green chiles although I think I would leave either one out completely next time... Topped each sandwich with some cole slaw and made baked sweet potato fries for a side...
Easy easy EASY and GOOD!! I was looking for ways to use my crock pot and this is a keeper. Very quick. Most ingredients you will probably have on hand. I folllowed the recipe and was happy with the flavor however I did add a bit of salt to mine when it was served. We ate ours over baked potatoes. I think it would be great on nachos as well. Will make again! Pros: Quick to whip up and very versatile Cons: Could be bland if underseasoned
