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.
This was good but despite marinating about 4 hours, it wasn't as flavourful as I expected. It did brown nicely and had a bit of a bite but it seemed to need something more....maybe next time I'll add some crushed garlic. Thanks for posting, we'll try this again.
Very good and tasty. I more than dobled the chipoltle, but we like it hot!! Thanks!
Wow, wow, wow was this ever good! Wayne made these for me (of course) and paired it with a Caesar Salad for a terrific summertime dinner. He left out the parsley but otherwise made it as stated. DELICIOUS dish that will go on our regular rotation. Thanks Rita! :) Made for ZWT 3
We thought this was between a 4 and a 5 star, so I will go with a 5. It was too spicy for my kids. I used 2 chipotle chiles in adobo and my husband and I liked it very much. Next time, I will use just 1 of the chipotle chiles and hopefully my kids will enjoy it more. The smokiness of the chiles along with the sweetness of the honey gave the chicken a wonderful depth of flavor. Thanks, Rita!
I made this for PAC. Nice balance between the sweet and hot here! I did use 2 chipotles and I think it would have been too mild with just one...2 was perfect if you like spicy foods normally. I'm adding this to my permanent chicken cookbook!
Oooooh, loved by my spicy-loving spicy husband! ;) The can of Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce was just a 7 oz. can and they were little bitty things, so I used 7 or 8 of them, and I squeezed much of the sauce from the can into the marinade. After 4 hours in the marinade, pounded to 1/2 inch or so, we grilled these and WHOA! They were almost too spicy for me but not quite, and hubby just loved them! This goes on a recipe card for sure. And that's my best billing. Thanks again, Rita! I love your recipes!
Smoky, spicy with a hint of sweetness! Fantastic!
