Expert Tips

You can use a slow cooker, and this delicacy will be ready when you get home after a long day.

To be totally honest, when I tasted Mexican barbecued chicken, I thought the recipe would be extremely complicated. Fortunately, I was mistaken. This Mexican specialty is as simple as it is delicious. The sauce is so delectable that it's a good idea to have some rice and tortillas handy. You won't need a knife to cut the chicken; it'll fall apart by simply touching it. The chicken will be so juicy and delicious that you'll want to eat it again and again!

Directions

  • 1 Place the tomatoes in a hot skillet to soften them and to remove the skin easily.
  • 2 Add the guajillo chilies, skinless tomato, onion, and garlic to a pot of boiling water. Remove all the ingredients once they have softened.
  • 3 Blend the peppers, tomatoes, onion, and garlic in a blender and add the spices. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 4 Use a strainer to remove all solids and set the sauce aside.
  • 5 Place the chicken in a pot and cover it completely with the sauce.
  • 6 Allow to cook over very low heat for at least 1 hour.
  • 7 Serve hot, with plenty of sauce.
