Chipotle & Orange Grilled Chicken

  • Active Time 10m
  • Total Time 25m

4 servings

Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce contribute a rich smokiness to this quick orange-infused barbecue sauce.

ingredients

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Note: Chipotle chilis 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.

directions

Preheat the grill or broiler.

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

Lightly oil the grill or broiler rack (see Tip). Season the 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.
