Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 medium onion sliced
  • 4-6 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 jar salsa verde 24 ounces
  • 1/3 cup chicken bone broth
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 leaves bay

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325°F (or use slow cooker crock).
  • Place all of the ingredients in an enameled Dutch oven or other large, heavy, oven-safe pot and stir to combine, coating the chicken with the sauce.
  • Cover and place into the oven for 3 hours, or until the chicken is fork-tender and pulls apart easily.
  • After 3 hours, adjust the led so that it's off-center and return the pot to the oven for an additional 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow the liquid to reduce to a thick sauce.
  • Remove the chicken from the Dutch oven (reserve the sauce) and allow it to cool slightly before shredding with two forks or a fork and spoon.
  • Toss the shredded meat in the reserved sauce.

Notes

Serve with sliced avocados, cilantro, and or lime wedges.
