Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the chicken in 2 batches and cook for 10 minutes until it's well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  2. Add the pepper and onion to the saucepot and cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  3. Stir the soup, water, vinegar, brown sugar and chile pepper in the saucepot. Heat to a boil. Return the chicken to the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the chicken is fork-tender.
  4. Remove the chicken from the saucepot to a cutting board. Using 2 forks shred the chicken. Return the chicken to the saucepot.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
  6. Serve the chicken mixture on the buns. Top with the cheese, if desired.

Quite delicious. I substituted canned San Marcos brand chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (sliced) for the ground pepper. It gave a nicely complex flavor. Would suggest serving it with flour tortillas as a taco. We didn't use the cheese, didn't miss it. Served with a black bean, corn, rice, & pineapple salad topped in tomatillo salsa.

I easily did this in a slow cooker! Browned the chicken on the stovetop as instructed . Mixed the soup,vinegar, water, brown sugar and chipotle in the cooker. Put the bell pepper in, then the browned chicken and finally topped with the onions. Covered on high until tender- not sure how long that was. When the onions started to cook down , I stirred everything to combine in the liquid. I did however use 2 Tablespoons canned diced chipotle instead of dry

I made a couple minor changes to this...I used homemade canned tomato sauce and some a pinch of dried cayenne since that's what I had on hand. The first day my husband ate it as a sandwich and liked it, but day two over rice was even better. I will definitely be adding this to our rotation!
