Mexican Chicken

Derived from www.mommynovice.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/shredded-chicken-mexican-style

I know I am a horrible person for not having a picture, but it is THAT good!  I am always forgetting to take a picture before serving it!  This is great chicken for any dish asking for shredded chicken with spice, usually in a latin dish, like these A-MAZING enchiladas!  However, feel free to use it over rice, or pasta, or maybe to make nachos?  Hmmm....

Heat a large saute pan.  Add:

1 T olive oil 
4 tabs butter 

Saute:

1 onions, diced 
4 garlic cloves, diced

Turn up heat, add: 

4 chicken thighs

Cook 3 min on one side. Spoon onion and garlic mixture on top. Season, to taste, with: 

salt 
pepper
paprika 
cumin 

Flip, cook 3 minutes the other side, spoon onion and garlic mixture, season with salt, pepper, paprika and cumin. Flip once more, cook 2 more minutes, fat side down. Add:

1-2 qts chicken stock (enough chicken stock to cover 3/4 chicken)

Add: 

1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
Season with salt and pepper

Lower heat, cover, cook for 20 minutes.  You will need to shred the chicken.  Use this for enchilladas!
