Mexican Pulled Chicken4.3/5 (BASED ON 2773 reviews)
Mole (pronounced mo-leh) from Puebla, Mexico is traditionally a deep, rich flavoured one-pot with ancho chilli, chipotle and chocolate, which gives the sauce its dark colour. Our quick version of tender pulled chicken takes inspiration from the Mole sauce, making for a tasty burger filling. The chipotle slaw adds crunch and colour to the toasted brioche bun and the paprika sweet potato fries tie it all together nicely!

Our 25 minute recipe
Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and then bring a non-stick pan of water to the boil for the chicken. Put the chicken thighs in the pan to poach for 10 mins over a medium heat. Meanwhile, toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp of oil and the Mexican Seasoning on a baking tray and roast for 20 mins.
Meanwhile, put half of the Chipotle Paste into a salad bowl with the mayonnaise and stir well. Taste it, and if it’s too spicy, add some more mayonnaise, or if you want it spicier, add more Chipotle Paste. Then add the cabbage and carrots, mix well and put aside.
When just cooked, remove the chicken from the pan and put on a chopping board. Pour away the water. Use two forks to "pull" the chicken thighs apart, roughly shredding them. Return the pan to the hob and heat 1 tbsp olive oil over a medium heat. Add the Mole Sauce, stir quickly, and then add the shredded chicken. Stir-fry for 2 mins and then add 50ml water to loosen the sauce. Then stir occasionally for 2-3 mins, or until the water has mostly been absorbed, then turn off the heat.
When the potatoes are almost done, halve the buns and place them in the oven to warm up (cut side facing up). Assemble your bun by putting your pulled chicken mixture in and adding some chipotle slaw on top. Serve with the sweet potato wedges with extra slaw on the side.

I didn’t see think this was going to be a hit - but it was lovely and I will definitely order again
Charlotte - Nov 10, 2018
Very tasty, but probably enough for 4 rather than 2. Buy extra brioche buns!!
Scott - Nov 10, 2018
A trick for the slaw. When you've made the sauce.... Cut some of the savoy and some Carrot then add abit at a time. They way you will make enough veg and still be saucey.

Janie - Oct 28, 2018
My son's favourite. Loved it
Emma - Oct 26, 2018
Loved it. Never boiled chicken before, never knew I could do that it really works. We used all the slaw seasoning so it had a nice little kick. Tip: we used 5 chicken thighs and it made so much pulled chicken I am glad I bought 4 brioche buns because we needed them.

Hubby loved this one definitely one to have again
Elly - Oct 18, 2018
Very tasty chicken and fries. Coleslaw was just coleslaw, nothing special.
Ian - Oct 18, 2018
Bit ordinary to be honest, having a chicken sandwich is nicer !
Julie - Oct 17, 2018
This is the second time we have had this love it
Marta - Oct 16, 2018
First one I ordered was amazing, then every time after that I was being sent Spinach Paneer instead so this time I recreated the mixes and pastes from the little list on the recipe card. I probably won’t order again as my version was incredible (!) but will carry on using your service as the recipe combinations are very innovative and creative and with new ones every month - you cannot go wrong
Chris - Oct 16, 2018

Better than I expected. The chicken was lovely, nice flavour. The coleslaw was kicky (we used all the spice), but I like that.
Nicola - Sep 21, 2018
Didnt really find it that tasty although the kids enjoyed it.dont think I would pick this one again.
Diane - Sep 21, 2018
Delicious- this is the second time I’ve made this recipe and it didn’t disappoint. I used chicken breast instead of thighs and the meat was juicy and tender. This will be on my list again!
