    Cookgirl's Note:

    Recipe from a local source: "Chipotle Chicken was adapted from a tiny village cook in Oaxaca, Mexico. The wet rub can be used equally well on thick fish steaks or large whole fish, such as snapper." This recipe reminded me of another one on the Almond-Crusted Catalan Chicken posted by Mirj. I "borrowed" the breadcrumb coating idea and it worked well. Looking for an almond meal recipe?: Just Almond Meal

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups almond meal (Or more as needed. I used a combination of both almond meal and breadcrumbs with a 75/25 ratio.) or 1 1/2 cups finely ground breadcrumbs
    • 6 skinless chicken thighs, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
    • 1 teaspoon lime zest
    • olive oil

    Wet Rub



    1. 1
      *Note: Add more jalapeños to taste. I reduced the amount significantly from the original recipe adding about 2 tablespoons total of fresh jalapeño and serrano chili peppers.
    2. 2
      Wet Rub: In a blender, combine the chipotles with adobo sauce, white onion, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice. Add a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth.
    3. 3
      Transfer to a large glass mixing bowl. Fold in 3/4 cup of mayonnaise. Taste and adjust seasonings. If it is too spicy, add more mayonnaise.
    4. 4
      Add the chicken pieces, turn to coat, then cover the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
    5. 5
      Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
    6. 6
      Place the almond meal/breadcrumbs on a large plate. Stir in the lime zest then coat the chicken pieces on each side. Transfer the chicken to an oiled (olive oil) roasting pan or large pie dish. {{Important}}: *Discard* the chipotle-mayonnaise mixture and breadcrumbs.
    7. 7
      Bake until the chicken is no longer pink, the juices run clear and the breadcrumbs are nicely brown, about 45 minutes. Note: if the breadcrumbs look like they might start to burn, you can cover the pie pan with aluminum foil.
    8. 8
      Let the chicken rest in the pan 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve with wedges of lime and garnish of fresh cilantro.
    9. 9
      Serving suggestion: The chicken thighs were transferred to a platter of converted rice (not instant) and served along with plain black beans and Carrots in Vinegar (Cenouras Em Conserva) spooned over a bed of baby spinach.
