Ingredients
  

  • 1.5 lbs chicken breast ⁣
  • 1  can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (7oz)⁣ use half for less heat
  • 7 oz water ⁣
  • 220 g (~1/2 container) salsa ⁣

Chili Lima Crema (1 serving)

Instructions
 

For the chicken:

  • For the Chicken: Spray pan over medium heat with cooking spray. Salt and pepper chicken breast and sear. Once seared add chipotles, water and salsa. Stir and bring to a bubbling simmer over medium and cover. ⁣
    Cook covered for 10 mins. Flip chicken. Cook covered for another 10 mins. Shred chicken with two forks and stir together. Chop peppers (I use my meat masher direct in the pan). Stir together. Simmer for a few minutes to allow the chicken to soak up the juices. ⁣

For the crema:

  • For the Crema: Mix everything together. Let set in fridge.

For the pita:

  • Warm pitas in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften. Add green leaf lettuce, 1 servings of chicken adobo mixture split between the two pitas. Top with crema and cilantro and enjoy

Notes

Pairs well with pitas, lettuce wraps, rice, on nachos, buns, possibilities are endless here. Reheats well in the microwave making for a perfect meal prep option.
