READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Evie3234

This is an easy but delicious meal from the Los Barrios Family Cookbook. The restaurant, Los Barrios, is one of San Antonio's true gems. This is a recipe which I was lucky enough to adopt, have made it numerous times and love it.

This makes the most tender, juicy chicken. We loved it! I used 2 chipotle peppers, and some of the adobo from the can. And I threw in some cumin, too. After simmering the chicken, I sliced it to about 1/2 inch slices, put it in the pan, and poured the sauce over. And while blending the sauce in the blender, I also threw in the garlic that had simmered with the chicken. This can't be any easier, but the results are very good. Thanks mox!
