This fanciful reinterpretation of pulled pork uses chicken and lots of tomato sauce. Have sliced jalapenos, sliced red onions and some sour cream on hand to top this hearty main course.

  • 1 8-ounce can
    reduced-sodium tomato sauce
  • 1 4-ounce can
    green chiles, chopped, drained
  • 3 tablespoons
    cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon
    sweet or smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon
    tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon
    Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons
    dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon
    ground chipotle chile
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 2 1/2 pounds
    boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
  • 1 small
    onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove
    garlic, minced
  1. Stir tomato sauce, chiles, vinegar, honey, paprika, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, ground chipotle and salt in a 6-quart slow cooker until smooth. Add chicken, onion and garlic; stir to combine.
  2. Put the lid on and cook on low until the chicken can be pulled apart, about 5 hours.
  3. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and shred with a fork. Return the chicken to the sauce, stir well and serve.
