Chipotle Chicken seeping with flavor is a meal all in one or instantly transforms tacos, burritos, salads, bowls, etc into the most epic tacos, burritos, salads, bowls EVER!
Living in San Diego (Carlsbad is north San Diego), I have a plethora of Mexican restaurants at my fingertips. Thank goodness, because Patrick and I crave Mexican 90% of the time. But even after all our Mexican tasting, my favorite meat is still my Carne Asada and my favorite Mexican chicken is still my very own Chipotle Chicken! Its a fraction of the cost of dining out, 10X the flavor and you can whip it up on a craving or prep beforehand to be instantly at your fingertips. Serve it with Cilantro Lime Rice and Beans Beans for an easy instant meal or tacos, burritos, etc. or as the crowning adornment of my TexMex Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Pasta – LOVE!
The Chipotle Chicken is bathed in aromatic Mexican spices of chipotle chili powder for a smoky heat, mixed with chili powder, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic and onion powder…
The spices are mixed with olive oil and lime juice to tenderize the meat so its oh so juicy and then slathered all over your chicken. Just look at those spices ready to create a fiesta in your mouth!
Depending on your time, you can cook the chicken right away, or wait 30 minutes or better yet, let marinate 8 hours. You can then cook stovetop or fire up the grill (I’ve included cooking instructions for both). But no matter how you cook this chicken – it will be epically flavorful, epically delicious.
