Honey Chipotle Chicken

This simple chicken recipe has easily become one of our favorites.  It’s easy to make, with a sweet, smokey, and slightly spicy flavor.  Again, sorry for the lack of photos.  We ate this too quickly too, but wanted to make sure we can always find the recipe to make it again and again.

Here’s what you need:

salt and pepper

1/2 cup olive oil

6 tablespoons adobo sauce and some chunks of chipotles, from a can of chipotles in adobo

4 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons dijon mustard

2 tablespoons honey mustard

handful of freshly chopped cilantro

8 minced garlic cloves, or some generous squeezes of the refrigerated garlic paste (I like the Gourmet Garden Garlic Stir-In Paste)

2 pounds chicken (I like boneless, skinless thighs, but you could also do breasts)

Here’s what you do:

1.  In a bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients.

2.  Stir in the chicken to combine.

3.  Put the chicken and marinade into a container or Ziploc bag, and allow to marinate overnight.

4.  When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350 degrees,  Pour all the chicken and marinade into a pan, and cook for about an hour, or until the chicken is fully cooked through.
