Saucy Mama Sweet Heat BBQ Pulled Chicken with Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes

Read the recipe then scroll down for a Saucy Mama Giveaway!
I have to admit, this recipe was so super simple and the flavor was amazing! I'd make this again and again!
The Saucy Mama Sweet Heat Marinade was the perfect sweet and spicy sauce to simmer the tender pulled chicken in. Then instead of putting it on a bun I thought- why not put it on top of mashed potatoes? Genius (haha, if I do say so myself!).
What else is awesome about this recipe?
It's only 5 ingredients (not counting oils and salt/pepper of course)!

Ingredients:
1 lb skinless, boneless chicken thighs (about 4 small)
1 lb yukon gold potatoes (peeled and cubed)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2- 3/4 cup chicken broth
8 oz Saucy Mama Sweet Heat Marinade

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add cubed potatoes.
Simmer until fork tender about 15 minutes.

 Heat olive oil in a large heavy bottom pot.
 Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
 Sear chicken on both sides in pot until browned. 
Lower heat and pour Sweet Heat Sauce on top of chicken.
 Let simmer for a minute and then add 1/2 cup chicken broth and cover.
 Continue simmering chicken until it is cooked through and pulls apart
 easily with a fork (about 10-15 minutes). If the broth cooks down too fast add 1/4 cup more.
 Drain hot potatoes and add to a bowl with heavy cream. Mix until creamy with a mixer.
Season with salt and ground black pepper. 
 Shred or pull the chicken apart with two forks and let it mix in and soak up the sauce.
 Place a large scoop of Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes on a plate and
top with Sweet Heat BBQ Pulled Chicken. Serve with a salad or some
fresh green beans if you're feeling like you need your veggies!

  4. This recipe sounds fantastic and I cannot wait to try it! I have had pulled chicken over potatoe rolls, but not mashed potatoes. Yummy. My favorite kind of heat is sweet, so this recipe is right up my alley!
