Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment


Greetings its nice outside so how about some grilling!!! Chicken with Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce contribute a rich smokiness to this quick orange-infused barbecue sauce.

Chipotle-&-Orange Grilled Chicken:


2 tablespoons orange-juice concentrate, thawed

1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (see Note)

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons unsulfured molasses

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed

Salt to taste


1. Preheat grill or broiler.

2. Whisk together orange-juice concentrate, chipotle pepper, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.

3. Lightly oil the grill or broiler rack (see Tip). Season chicken with salt and grill or broil for 2 minutes. Turn, brush with the glaze and cook for 4 minutes, brushing occasionally with glaze. Turn again, brush with the glaze, and cook until the center is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Note: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.

Tip: To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
