10 Minute prep Grilled or Stove Top Chipotle Maple Chicken infused with orange juice is so incredibly juicy and bursting with sweet and tangy flavor with just the right amount of heat for the whole family. Its amazing alone, with veggies, on a salad, sandwich or wraps!
You guys, I loooove this Chipotle Maple Chicken! I’ve grilled it, made it on the stove top and even made it as a one pan meal with fingerling potatoes and broccoli (coming soon) so I hope you love it too!
The Chipotle Maple Marinade/Sauce is amazingly flavorful without being overpowering which makes this chicken incredibly versatile. I particularly love it with my Herbed Gruyere Scalloped Potatoes with Bacon (an old post and pics but one of my all time favs) and a fresh green salad. And the best part is this chicken is so quick and easy you have time to make a fun side like the Herbed Gruyere Scalloped Potatoes with Bacon. Winning.
The marinade/ Chipotle Maple Glaze is a quick whisking together of pure maple syrup (not the imitation breakfast kind), apricot preserves (my favorite secret ingredient), orange juice, balsamic vinegar and splashes of soy sauce and Dijon mustard which you then divide to create your marinade and glaze. You then mix together a bevy of spices including chipotle chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, basil, oregano and orange zest and add most to your marinade and reserve the rest for your glaze. By adding most of the spices to the marinade the chicken emerges incredibly juicy and flavorful with a lick-your-fingers-delish complementary glaze.
Simmer your glaze until slightly thickened, slather over your chicken and/or veggies and dig into an easy, tangy, sweet heat, juicy bite of Chipotle Maple Chicken and begin dreaming of all the different ways to consume this chicken. I’m up to 57.
