Here’s a Chipotle Chicken Recipe you’ll just love and use again and again. It’s tender, juicy and full of flavor. The spice can be adjusted according to your specific tastes. I’ve portioned out the heat to a medium kick so adjust accordingly by adding or subtracting Chipotle Peppers. I’m using canned Chipotle Peppers with Adobo sauce so the smokey taste will spread further. Marination isn’t necessary but it never hurts if you want to throw this in the refrigerator over night or for even just a half an hour. It’s up to you.
Chipotle Chicken for Tacos & Burrito’s
There are a ton of different ways to use this Chipotle Chicken recipe but my favorite way to put this meat to use is with street style tacos, like the photo above or in a burrito. I even like to have it in a rice bowl, with a lot of other veggies, Tex-Mex style. But if you want to go “fast food” with this Chipotle Chicken, I highly recommend loading a burrito, 7 Layer style, with all the works. I’m talking about rice, beans, cheese, guacamole, lettuce and sour cream. That’s one of my favorite ways to prepare this recipe, Chipotle style Taco Hell. 😉
I think when most people think “Curry” they aren’t thinking Curry Chicken Salad. Though it is quite popular these days. That’s why I thought I’d introduce the way restaurants make this salad so you can do it yourself in the comfort of your own home. And for me that’s what it’s all about. In fact my wife and I hardly ever eat out. And when you eat like this, who needs to! Salads like this don’t have to be prepared by professionals. You can do it, I promise. Just load your fridge with the fresh ingredients I listed below and maybe some of your personal favorites and we’ll pull this off together.
Curry Chicken Salad in just Minutes
For this Curry Chicken Salad recipe, I’m including a simple curry sauce that is, literally, made in under a minute and I filmed the actual cooking in real time to prove it. Also I’ve added a real simplified relish based with fresh Pineapple and Mango. There’s a dash of mint and crushed red pepper to give it some flare and I really think it helps this salad step it up. When it comes to salads I feel it’s safe to make any substitutions you see fit and just use this recipe as a basic guideline. But, when it comes to the curry, stay true to the proper preparation. It’s not necessary to serve the Chicken and the Curry Sauce cold but if you can plan ahead and refrigerate those two stages before hand you’ll be golden, pony boy! 😉
If you use fresh Pineapple like I do you’re going to have a lot of it left over, so here I’ve included a link for my Pina Colada Recipe!
