Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken


This may be the easiest spicy chicken recipe ever! Each of the 5 ingredients in this recipe plays a key role to the overall flavor. The chicken comes out of the slow cooker tender and juicy with a nice deep color from the chilis. The heat in the chicken is slow and smoky. As you begin eating, you don't really notice the spice, but as you keep eating, it begins to creep up on you like a smoldering fire.
While we ate the chicken as is with a side of potatoes, I can see this recipe used as the base for chicken tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, etc. The meat is so flavorful and tender that the possibilities are endless.

1 Large Yellow Onion, Sliced
3 Cloves Garlic, Peeled and Halved
3 Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
7 Ounce Can Chipotles in Adobo
1/4 Cup Water
1. In a large slow cooker, line the bottom with sliced onion and garlic. Place the chicken on top of the onions/garlic. Top with Chipotles in Adobo. Use the water to rinse the can and pour into the slow cooker.
2. Place the lid on the cooker. Set to LOW.
3. Allow to cook for 6-8 hours.
