Pulled Chicken with Red Sauce Recipe
A fun take on Pulled Pork
You’ve heard of pulled pork, right? Well, this meal is just a variation. The dish is very simple and easy to make. Little ingredients are needed and can be made with items that you probably already have on hand. It’s one of my go to meals when old mother hubbard’s cupboards are a little bare just before grocery shopping day!
For this recipe you will need the following:
1 Bottle of Red Soss Sweet Sauce
2 Boneless Chicken Breasts
1 Carrot (large)
1 Potato (medium size)
1 Yam (large)
2 Cups Rice
Peas (1 small can)
Vinegar, Corn Starch and Brown Sugar
In a medium sized pot add 1 Bottle Red Soss Sweet Sauce and the 2 Chicken breasts. Peel, rinse and grate the Carrot into the pot. Peel, rinse and grate the Potato into the pot. Cover and let simmer. Note: You can use whatever vegetables you like. I’ve used turnip and celery and more. It’s a great way to use up those veggies in the crisper!
In a small sauce pan add 2 cups of water. This will be for your rice.
In a small pot, add water. Cut the Yam into large portions and add to the pot, let simmer until fork tender.
When the Yams are almost cooked and the Chicken is pretty much cooked throughout, boil the water for your rice and add the rice to the pot. I used Instant Rice so it cooks fairly quickly.
Open your can of peas and heat. I just used my microwave to heat the peas as it’s faster than using the stove.
Add the heated peas to your rice in the pot. Drain your Yams.
Remove the Chicken from the pot and pull it apart. This will be really easy to do as it should be moist, tender and falling apart already.
Now, to dress up your plate!
Add 3 peices of Yam on your bowl or plate off to the side. Place rice and pea mixture onto the plate and top with your Chicken. Pour your Red Sauce on top.
I like making the sauce for my pulled Chicken a Sweet + Sour one just for fun. If you would like to make yours this way as well just follow this easy peasy step.
When you remove the Chicken from the pot to pull apart, simply add 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup brown sugar to the sauce. Bring to a boil. Make sure to taste and check for the right balance of sweet to sour. Add corn starch to thicken.
Voila, Your Pulled Chicken is ready to serve.
A delicious, low cost, meal on a budget!
