Chili or stew: It's up to you, really! But whatever you want to call it, this simple slow cooker chipotle chicken recipe is darn tasty: The sweetness of the corn plays off the smoky heat of the chipotle peppers, and the chicken and beans make this a hearty one-pot meal that pairs well with anything from baked potatoes to cornbread. Naturally gluten free.
Place the trimmed chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker and season it with spices, sea salt, and pepper.
Top chicken evenly with the minced garlic, then add the onion, tomatoes, chipotles and chipotle sauce, beans, and corn (spreading these out evenly across the top as you go).
Pour in the chicken broth and add the bay leaf, then cook on low for six hours.
Remove the bay leaf and discard, then remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred.
Stir the shredded chicken back into the Crock-Pot, then serve your chipotle chicken chili with your favorite chili toppings.
I used four chipotles in adobo to give my chili a nice underlying kick, because I like some heat in mine. If you are more sensitive to spice, you might wish to cut back to two peppers. Also: I always like to use my little food chopper for garlic and chipotles in order to speed up the chopping process.
