This past week was full of that for me. No matter how hard I tried there just didn’t seem to be enough minutes in the day. So when my plan to make one of my favorite dishes, Slow Cooker Beef Barbacoa, fell apart, I needed a quick substitute that I could make with things I had on hand and throw together in just a couple of minutes. Seeing some frozen chicken breasts and a can of chipotle peppers in adobo, I decided to try out a quick version of barbacoa with chicken. I relied on the smoky chipotles to add the depth of flavor you usually get from the dried chilies along with some simple spices. The result is an incredibly simple and delicious dish.
