We loved this!!! I doubled it, omitted the green chiles and subbed a can of rotel. Seasoned with cumin and chipotle chili powder. Had some breasts and some thighs that I boiled and shredded. I used the broth from the chicken and added some boullion. I simmered, covered on the stove for 40 minutes or so and then took the lid off to reduce the sauce for about 15 more minutes. Served on soft flour tortillas... really fabulous... will absolutely be making again and again!

I used chicken thighs for this. I cooked them first, and saved the broth. I added cumin and some cayenne pepper. It turned out wonderfully! Thanks for posting.

Very good! I have tried this 2 times now, and I must say it is much less dry if you use dark meat. A great quick fix that keeps me from having to go to Taco Cabana.

VERY good and so easy! I took a page from NcMysteryShopper and used a can of Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and green chiles in lieu of the tomato sauce and chiles. Turned out so good! Thanks for sharing!

I added some cumin, ancho chile powder, sea salt and pepper to the recipe. I also used hot green chiles and subbed a can of Ro-tel habanero tomatoes for the tomato sauce (we live in Phoenix and like it hot!) I made them with a mild white quesadilla cheese. We also fried them up in oil like chimichangas and ate them with cool sour cream on top. Yummy!

I used rotel tomatoes with green chilies instead of the tomato sauce and chopped chilies. We had in soft tortillas rolled up, and I added in Mexican Rice, sour cream and salsa before assembling the burritos. They sure were big! Everyone here raved about them, and asked to have them again, so we will do that soon again!

I made this with Queso Blanco Dip Queso Blanco Dip and it was very good and very easy. I stored the left overs in the fridge for great burritos all week long.

I love this chicken! I have made it a couple times. Its to mild for me but I just add a bunch of tapatio and its perfect. Its great with fried corn tortillas lettuce and cheese. Thanks so much for such a great recipe!
