Grilled Chicken with Chipotle-Orange Glaze

  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 20m

2 servings

Smoky chipotle peppers make this quick, citrusy barbecue sauce special. Try this recipe with shrimp or pork chops on the grill as well. Serve with Quinoa & Black Beans and fruit sorbet for dessert.

ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat (8 ounces)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

directions

Preheat grill or broiler to high. Lightly oil the rack (see Tip).

Whisk orange juice concentrate, chiles, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.

Sprinkle chicken with salt. Grill or broil the chicken for 2 minutes. Turn the chicken, brush with the chipotle-orange glaze, and cook, brushing occasionally with more of the glaze, 4 minutes more. Turn the chicken again, brush with the glaze, and cook until no longer pink in the middle, 2 to 5 minutes more.

Ingredient Note: Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapenos 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 the grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Don’t use cooking spray on a hot grill).
