There's depth, subtlety, and just the right amount of heat here. Start preparing this dish one day ahead since the chicken needs to marinate overnight. Grilled spicy chipotle chicken is perfect for weekend grilling and family get-togethers!

The bright color of the honey-chipotle pepper in adobo sauce marinade transfers to the chicken, lending a spectacular redness to the chicken. The meat has a lot of flavors and works well in tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, or on top of salads.

For This Recipe You Will Need the:

Peppers: You can use fewer Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce for less heat.

Honey: Dark corn syrup or 1/4 cup dark brown sugar can also be used instead of honey.

Garlic: Minced

Salt: Sea salt or kosher salt

Olive Oil: Canola oil or vegetable oil can replace olive oil

Chicken: Boneless thighs, breast, or chicken tenderloins

  • Place the first 5 ingredients into the blender or small food processor and puree for a few moments. Pour the marinade over the chicken in an airtight container or large ziplock bag and shake to coat each of the pieces.
  • Marinate for 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Grill chicken or oven bake till the internal temperature of 165 degrees

Let it rest 5-10 mins before serving. Serve with your favorite side, or cut into bite-size pieces for tacos, burritos, or rice bowls
