Recipe – Dukan – Pulled Chicken

I’ve been trying out some recipes with the staff here at the birth house and yesterday’s lunch was a keeper!

PULLED CHICKEN IN THE CROCKPOT

SERVED 6

2 Large chicken breast
2 Tbs coconut oil
5 yellow squash chopped
1 big red onion chopped
1 small bag of baby carrots (3 chopped lg carrots)
3 packets of Sazón seasoning
A wee bit of sea salt

In a fry pan melt 2 Tbs of coconut oil on med/high heat. When hot add the chicken breasts and cover with lid for 3 minutes. Turn and cover for 3 more minutes and place in crockpot, keeping the oil in the pan.
Toss the onions in the pan and give a stir for 2 minutes or so, add to crockpot, go on, pour that coconut oil in there, Mmmmm!
Place the squash and carrots in.
Add the 3 packets of Sazón, a dash of sea salt and add hot water just to where it is barely covering.
Put the crockpot on high for 2 hours. Stirring occasionally. At the two hour mark take two forks and pull the chicken apart as much as possible. Continue cooking another hour and pull the chicken apart some more, stir well. At the 3 1/2 hour mark, it’s done…. ENJOY!

**You can slow cook this while at work. Put crockpot on low. When you get home your house will smell AMAZING! Pull the chicken apart with 2 forks and cook an additional half hour, then serve.

    • The squash held up quite well!
      Heres what I found on the ingredients for Sazón. The sazon seasoning is pretty unique in flavor and the foil packets do wonders to your dishes. One packet contains mono sodium glutamate, salt, garlic, and coriander and color boosters. this seasoning is also very much used in Puerto Rico where it has as ingredients dried cilantro, paprika, saffron, garlic powder, ground cumin and salt.
