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. The featured image shows pulled chicken with the Mango/Aji Amarillo sauce,  but you can also use the Peruvian Blood Orange/Aji Panca sauce, Hatch Chile sauce, Pomegranate grill sauce, New Zealand grill sauce, or the Mexican Mole. This recipe works perfectly with one of our fresh slaw recipes – click HERE.  We love the Asian slaw with the Mango pulled chicken shown in the featured image.  We used a very nice carrot slaw for the Mexican Pulled Chicken sandwich.

Pulled Pork Tacos with Mirasol Mole Cooking Sauce

The key to most regional cooking, but especially Mexican cooking, is to find high quality starting ingredients.  We had our butcher cut us a piece of the pork shoulder (also called pork butt) from the less fatty section.  This was an ideal cut for the pulled pork portion of the recipe.  We used the very flavorful Mirasol Mole Cooking Sauce from Serious Foodie as the foundation for the pulled pork braising liquid. Once you have a great pulled pork, and a great sauce, you can easily assemble and create a restaurant quality taco!
