Chipotle Chicken And Lettuce Tacos Recipe Instructions
Heat the olive oil or coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan, heat it up for a few minutes then quickly fry your chicken pieces until they turn a nice golden color. – Pop them to one side.
Keep hold of the frying pan, as in the same non stick pan, add another small splash of olive oil or coconut oil then fry off your onion until it softens and starts to caramelize.
Pop in your tomatoes, add a good pinch of cumin, brown sugar and chipotle. Then simmer the ingredients for around 15 – 25 minutes or until the tomato sauce starts to thicken.
Pop your chicken back into the delicious sauce and allow it to cook for about another 3-5 minutes.
