      Yummy marinade for grilled chicken! Easy to make too. It wasn't as spicy as I thought it might be; next time I'll probably add a little more chipotle. Great recipe - thanks for sharing!

      I made this recipe with chicken thighs and froze it for OAMC. I cooked it in the crockpot and it turned out full of flavor. My husband said it was the best chicken he has ever had. This will be one of our regulars now!

      Oh my! This is some good chicken. We have it at least once a week now that it's grilling weather. Wonderful flavors, and the chicken stays so juicy! We usually have it with grilled corn on the cob and a salad. It also works great with boneless pork chops, but I love the chicken breasts. From one Mamma to another, I thank you!
