Crockpot Chicken Chipotle


  • 1 jar tomato sauce
  • Tabasco Chipotle Pepper sauce
  • 4 medium chicken breasts
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, chopped, diced or whole, they will break down while cooking
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 crown of broccoli, stock and all, chopped.
  • 1 small red or green pepper
  • 1-2 large tomatoes (we do not seed them, but you may certainly do this)
  • penne pasta



  1. Thoroughly wash your veggies before chopping, dicing, and tossing into your slow cooker.
  2. Mix in a jar of tomato sauce along with 1 tablespoon of Tabasco Chipotle Pepper sauce before adding in whole chicken breasts.
  3. The low heat and long cooking time will make the chicken incredibly tender and will easily break or pull part when done so there is no need to cut it into smaller pieces to start.
  4. Cook on low for 4-6 hours, high for 2-5 hours.

History of Chipotle Chicken

The history of Chipotle chicken specifically as a menu item at Chipotle Mexican Grill is quite short! While “chipotle” refers to smoked jalape├▒os and has a long history in Mexican cuisine, and chicken dishes are staples in many cultures, Chipotle's unique take on chipotle chicken is a recent invention.

  • Before Chipotle: Chipotle peppers and chicken dishes have been enjoyed in various forms for centuries in Mexico and elsewhere. Chipotle peppers were traditionally smoked to preserve them, adding a smoky flavor to dishes. Grilled or roasted chicken is a common protein in many cuisines, including Mexican.

  • Chipotle Mexican Grill: Founded in 1993, Chipotle initially focused on offering burritos, tacos, and bowls with various fillings, including shredded barbacoa and carnitas, but not specifically chipotle chicken. Their menu primarily featured pork and beef as protein options until…
  • 2022: Pollo Asado Arrival: In March 2022, Chipotle launched its first major chicken menu innovation in its history: Pollo Asado. This marked the official debut of Chipotle chicken as a distinct offering at the popular restaurant chain. Pollo Asado is characterized by: Responsibly Raised┬« chicken marinated with citrus and spices. Grilled fresh in small batches on a plancha. Hand-chopped for a juicy texture. Flavored with cilantro and a bright marinade.

Chipotle peppers and chicken dishes have a long history, Chipotle's “chipotle chicken” as a specific menu item is a young but popular recent addition. We hope that you love this Chipotle Chicken Recipe Crockpot. Happy cooking!

    I dont think I have seen the chipolte flavored Tabasco yet and we buy that brand. It sounds good and different and I bet it would be good i other dishes too.
    We make chili quite a bit in the winter and I think it would lend a hand to that as well as giving a kick to other dishes!
