Ingredients

  • 1 (1135 g) broiler chicken 4-5lbs (use 1135g of the pulled meat)
  • 3 (120 g) lemons
  • 1 medium (200 g) sweet onion
  • Salt to taste it will need quite a bit
  • 2 Tbsp (30 g) Tabasco
  • 2 small (15 g) serrano peppers optional
  • 5 (20 g) green onions
  • 1 Tbsp (10 g) olive oil
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F. In a baking dish place the chicken breast side up. Remove the giblets from the cavity and pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook the bird for 1 hour (plus or minus 10 minutes) on a lower middle rack in the oven. Use a meat thermometer to temp the meat and ensure it is around 165°F.
  • Once the chicken has cooked and cooled, tear the meat away from the bones, remove the skin, and dice the chicken into small pieces.
  • Finley chop the onion, green onion, and serranos into small pieces and set aside.
  • Spread the chicken out in a shallow dish and add the juice of three lemons, diced sweet onion, serranos, salt, green onion, and hot sauce. Mix everything together and taste, adjust the salt and hot sauce levels to suit your liking.
