Scroll to recipe

Chicken tinga (known as tinga de pollo in Spanish) is a Mexican dish made with shredded chicken in a sauce made from tomatoes, chipotle, chillis in adobo and sliced onions. It is often served on a tostada and accompanied by a layer of refried beans. It can be topped with avocado slices, crumbled cheese, Mexican crema, and salsa.

This recipe by Chef Samantha George is an adaption of the traditional Ching Tinga, the chicken was not precooked as often done but instead apply the seasoning to raw thinly sliced chicken and add tomato sauce during the process.
