Ingredients:  
3-4 medium size chicken breast
1-2 large onions sliced
4-5 medium tomatoes chopped
1 can of Chipotle chiles in Adobo
2-3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
4-5 tbsp olive oil

Directions:
Directions:
Bring a pot with water to a boil and add chicken breast to cook. Let chicken simmer until is cooked through. Make sure to skim foam that forms on top of water as it starts boiling. While chicken is cooking, slice onions.
Heat oil in a large pan and add onion. Cook onion until soft and translucent ~ 5-6 minutes. In a blender, throw tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper and 2-3 chipotle chiles. Be careful with the chiles. The original Mexican recipe calls for the entire can of Chipotle,this can be too spicy, so add less (2-3) chiles in the blender.
After blending ingredients, taste salsa for salt and pepper and adjust if needed. Pour salsa over onions.
Let sauce simmer on low heat while you take chicken out of water.
DO NOT throw away the chicken stock. You can make a beautiful rice for this dish using the stock to boil the rice.
Take two forks and shred chicken. Add to sauce and mix well to incorporate chicken. Let simmer for a minute and serve over rice or on warm tortillas.

This is an authentic Mexican tinga de pollo, a dish made with shredded chicken in a delicious Chipotle chile in Adobo sauce. Great for tacos like the taco bar at the wedding!
