Bring a pot with water to a boil and add the chicken breast, bay leaf unpeeled garlic clove and small chunk of onion to cook, Let the chicken breast simmer until is cooked through for about 20 minutes (Make sure you skim the foam that forms on top of the water as it starts boiling). Remove the chicken to a bowl, and set aside until cool enough to handle, then shred the meat with your fingers or a fork.
2. Heat the oil in a large pan, When the oil is hot, add the chopped onion and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until soft and translucent, stirring often. Stir in the minced garlic and cook until aromatic, 15 to 30 seconds. Add the tomato, cooking until tomatoes start releasing its juices about 5 minutes.
3. Finally add shredded chicken, then add the chipotle, chicken broth and oregano, and season with three-fourths teaspoon salt, or to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer about 10 minutes until all the flavors had blended or the ingredients get acquainted with each other. Taste, and add more salt if desired. This makes about 2 cups of tinga de pollo.
