Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

Chicken sweetened with honey and kicked up with Chipotles in abobo sauce for added smokness. Serve over a bed of greens, a bed of rice, in a wrap, or with any favorite summer salad. Tenderizing Chicken Breasts in this method keeps the meat from sticking and tearing, plus there is no mess. Wet the inside of a gallon freezer bag with a little water or oil. Place one or two (depending on size) boneless, skinless chicken breasts inside the bag - seal part way. Lay the bag on a work surface and pound the meat to the desired thickness.

We made this chicken tonight for dinner and enjoyed it. It was very moist and very flavorful. I followed the directions as posted, except for using olive oil instead of vegetable oil, 3 chipotles in adobo, and 2 large garlic cloves, minced. I used the cilantro, which I find from previous experience goes well in a lime chicken marinade. I marinated for 2.5 hours and served with a salad on the side. Thanks, Rita.

I took some skinless, boneless chicken breasts and marinated it with plenty of the chiles. I put the chiles and fresh cilantro in my food processor for just a sec and then added the rest of the ingredients and poured this mixture of the chicken in a ziploc bag. I grilled the chicken on my George Foreman grill. Yum!

This produced a very moist chicken breast with great flavor! I halved all the ingredients as I was only doing 3 breasts and used the cilantro (love that) and added some garlic, like I do to most things. I will certainly make this chicken again! Just wanted to update this today to say that I used this marinade with salmon last night that i grilled and it was wonderful! I didn't make enough as my children loved the salmon too! I will use this again for that.
