Simple that’s the key word. And, this chicken tinga is just that. It’s a quick and easy pot of delicious love that has so many possibilities.

Chicken Tinga

Oh, this very delicious chicken tinga is a traditional Mexican and Pueblan dish made of braised chicken. You can also use pork. 

Cooked in a tomato sauce, the chicken is pull apart tender and scrumptious. 

Now if you want something with salsa, kind of similar, but not, to this one, then check out my Salsa Chicken. Only a few ingredients. Your Dutch oven and you have something fabulously delicious!

With a spicy sauce, this dish is simple, quick and easy. 

It’s the perfect weeknight dinner. The serving options are endless. So, it’s totally up to you. 

Simple Chicken Tinga Slow Cooker

Yes, you could do this in your slow cooker. However, using the boneless skinless chicken thighs that already are somewhat cooked in the browning process means that it doesn’t take long to finish the cooking in the oven. 

One great thing about this recipe is that it freezers and reheats superbly!

Tinga chicken is something everyone will love!

Make it into tacos, tortas, tostadas, burrito bowls. It’s perfect over rice. And, if you want to get adventurous, add some corn and/or black beans to your mixture.  

Taco Tinga

Another easy ingredient to add? Onions! Yes, thinly sliced sweet onions. That’s pretty traditional in most tinga recipes.

However, given that one of my eaters detests onions, I omitted it. But, I did add onion powder just for some extra flavor. Yep, sneaky! 

Goodness gracious do I have great chicken recipes! So different. And, most all of them are ez pz like this Salted Maple Spatchcock Chicken, Honey Garlic Chicken Casserole, Skinny Girl Creole Chicken, or Healing Chicken Soup!
