Sauteed Chipotle Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Stiles McCauley

We eat a lot of chicken and often experiment with ways to prepare it. We found some dried chipotle pepper flakes when we were in Arizona and decided to try using it in our sautéed chicken. It was fantastic! If you manage to find the chipotle flakes at your local whole foods or grocery, I recommend you buy them. They add a unique kick to any dish - also great on pizza. This recipe is quite versatile: use whatever chicken you happen to have; just make sure it's enough for 4 or you will need to adjust the ingredients.

This is absolutely fantastic. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, and it was the most flavorful, tender chicken ever. The gravy was a huge hit with the family. We love spicy food, but if you don't you can use less chipotle. I can't wait to make this again!
