& finely chopping – there are only 2 chillies in these pictures, but i found that added little heat and wound up using 4

once the onions have begun to brown, add the brown sugar & chipotle chillies to the mix

closely followed by the tin of tomatoes – i just broke them up with my trusty spatula – but you could use chopped tomatoes to save you having to do so….

once the chicken is cooked through – remove from the pan

make sure to scrap all the sauce back into the pan for maximum yumminess 😀

using 2 forks, shred the chicken ( yup it looks like loads – well it is loads…. )
