I was in a rush the morning I threw this together, so I used bone-in chicken thighs. By the time I got home from work, the chicken was so tender that it only took a couple of minutes to remove the bones - a quick, firm stir with a wooden spoon broke the meat up quite easily. The only other change I made was to increase the number of chipotles used to four. Excellent, excellent meal, and even MORE delicious the next day!
