Slow Cooked Roasted Chipotle Chicken by Chef Aarón Sánchez + Giveaway

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – scroll down to the bottom to see who won!***

Hottie Latino Chef Aarón Sánchez, star of Food Network’s “Chopped” and “Heat Seekers” has teamed up with Sierra Mist Natural, to launch “Comer Juntos: Una Tradicion Natural,” a program that encourages families to gather around the dinner table to share fun times over delicious Latin-inspired food and drinks. And we say, “Bravo Aaron!” for creating some simple mouth-watering dishes for families to enjoy – as a family.

Our best memories are the home cooked meals our mom and grandma made and eating together as a family. I’m sure you have those same wonderful memories. The emphasis here is eating together. We love the recipes that Chef Aarón has creatively made adding Sierra Mist Natural as an unexpected ingredient. After checking out the ingredients in a bottle of Sierra Mist we understand why he knew it was a perfect product; it’s beautifully blended with natural ingredients like lemons, limes, and real sugar all of which make a great base for slow cooking meats and or creating the perfect fruit drink with just the right amount of fizz. Brilliant!

“Comer Juntos” went live April 9th with seven step-by -step videos of Chef Aaron’s delicious recipes, in both English and Spanish with new recipes unveiled every week. A downloadable recipe booklet will also be available including three bonus recipes. Chef Aaron’s videos and recipes will be featured at These simple recipes are perfect for today’s busy lifestyle.

Today we are sharing his Slow Cooked Roasted Chipotle Chicken, which after having tested it ourselves; we know you are going to love it.

The spicy chicken is melt-in-your-mouth tender and perfect for filling tortillas for dinner tonight. We loved the recipe so much that we teamed up with Sierra Mist to offer you an incredible giveaway.
