If you’ve heard about this fantastic recipe through the grapevine, and you loved what you saw, then you are in for a real treat, because here, we will take the steps from her recipe and add just enough of a twist to turn this yummy meal into a potent cannabis-infused feast.

Who is Lauren Pope?

Lauren Pope is a world-famous television personality and model, she’s most well known for her role on the hit TV series The Only Way Is Essex, which she continued with until March of 2019. One year later, she announced to her fans that she was pregnant, and since then, she’s become popular with parents, as she dishes out advice. Though she doesn’t yet have her own experience with a child, she’s eagerly awaiting her journey through motherhood, and her fans are tuned in.

Why she revealed this tasty hack

Lauren is nearly due, and she took to the internet through Yahoo’s ‘The Baby Bump with Lauren’ to reveal her absolute favorite simple dish for parents who don’t have the time or energy to cook. The connection to parenthood that this dish share is the ability to be enjoyed by weaning toddlers who aren’t quite ready to be chomping down on hamburgers, but who are slowly finding their way with real food, which makes the idea multipurpose, as it can be tossed in a blend or fed BLW style with ease.

Where did the cannabis idea come from?

In truth, pretty much everything can be made better with weed, and with the incredible feedback from this incredible recipe, we thought that we’d tweak it enough to be more suitable for a cannabis enthusiast pallet, and the best part is that because it is infused so late in the game, it can still work as a meal idea for both you and baby, as long as you separate their portion before adding the cannabinoid laden goodness.

Warning – This one-pot recipe isn’t safe for children

Though it should go without saying, it is important to note that this recipe is not intended for children and is not safe nor appropriate to feed a toddler once it’s been infused with cannabis. If you do want to share the goods with a little one, then make sure to remove their portion before you add anything that has to do with weed. The results of this recipe will produce intense, intoxicating effects, and it is only intended for legal aged adults to consume once it’s complete.

Lauren Pope's one-pot pulled chicken recipe with a twist

As a parent, some days are hard, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with winding down to a big steam hot bowl of cannabis-infused pulled chicken, and this one-pot recipe requires almost no cleanup, which we’re sure any parent will agree is a pretty good deal.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 2 hours

Calories: 287


Servings: 6


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup diced carrots (frozen)
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons decarboxylated kief
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Deep baking dish
  • Tinfoil
  • Forks


  1. Preheat the oven to 320°F.

  2. Dump everything except for the kief into a large baking dish and mix it all together.

  3. Cover the baking dish with a thick layer of aluminum foil and then fold the edges to seal it all up.

  4. Bake the ingredients in the oven for 2 hours.

  5. Retrieve the baking dish and uncover the ingredients.

  6. Use two forks to pull apart the chicken until it is all shredded and then give everything a final stir.

  7. This is the point in which you will put some aside for anyone who may want to enjoy the dinner that is underage, and since everything is so soft, it’s great for any age.

  8. The final step is adding in the decarboxylated kief, and the reason that we chose this ingredient is that it’s easy to gather at home in the bottom of your grinder, so most cannabis enthusiasts always have some handy, but if you prefer, you can also use other ingredients to infuse the dish, like cannabis-infused oil, cannabutter, or rosin.
