When I made pork carnitas the other day, we loved it so much that I felt I had to share the joy with my daughter. Well, even though I said she could make it with ‘happy pork’ (her words for free range, no hormone etc etc), she politely responded with a firm ‘no thank you’ but couldn’t I make it with happy chicken?. So thanks to my little darling I can now say with certainty that these are just as delicious as the pork version (recipe here) …free range, grain-fed and all.
Of course I repeated the roasted corn salsa (recipe here)
I had some leftover Irish Whiskey Sauce from our rib feast (recipe here) but you could use some of the reserved cooking liquid to coat the shredded meat before grilling or use your fave barbecue sauce if you wish.
I served it on a bed of fluffy rice but wouldn’t this be great with tacos or tortillas? It makes 4 generous servings from just one large chicken breast so it’s very economical too. We were real oinkers tonight and gobbled up every last morsel….just the two of us.
I know you will be reading this, my daughter, and you gotta try this recipe!
