Simple Pulled Chicken

A favorite at any party, tail-gate, or picnic is pulled meat – chicken, pork, beef, or even lamb.  For great, flavorful pulled meat, there is the long way (sitting in front of your favorite smoker), or the short way. We have tested a number of techniques to create some wonderful BBQ-style chicken, pork, or beef recently using some of the Serious Foodie sauces (click HERE to check out all our products).  The folks that tasted our final product raved about the flavors, so we wanted to share our simple recipe with you.  This dish comes together in a snap, and stays true to the Serious Foodie mantra of easy, delicious, and healthy gourmet at home.

Simple and Elegant Swordfish Recipe with the Serious Foodie Mango/Aji Sauce

The South Pacific Mango/Aji  Sauce is a sweet/spicy/tangy combination of tropical flavors that is inspired by the cooking in Hawaii.  The sauce uses the unusually fruity flavors of the Aji Amarillo and Aji Crystal peppers (a native Hawaiian variety), which also gives a slight underlying spice to this product, while balanced with flavors of mango, lime, and orange (click HERE to order online).
