Chipotle Chicken

Who doesn’t love a good Chipotle marinade? While chicken is suggested, shrimp or a lean steak would be other good protein options. Pair with the Margarita Chicken Salad or Citrus Black Bean Salsa.

Active Prep Time: 10 minutes

Makes 6 servings.

    • 1, 7 oz can chipotle peppers in adobo
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • Juice of 2 limes
    • 2 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
    • ½ teaspoon cumin
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼  cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3-5 lb chicken breast or thighs
    1. Finely chop 3-4 chipotle peppers. To reduce spice, split the peppers open and remove the seeds. Add peppers and 3-4 Tbsp of adobo sauce to a ziplock bag.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients to the bag. Use a food processor to save time chopping. Marinade a lean protein (chicken, shrimp, or lean steak) for 2 hours or overnight.
