Grilled Chicken with Chipotle-Orange Glaze Recipe

Makes: 2 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1.5 teaspoons finely chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, (see 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

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill or broiler to high. Lightly oil the rack.
  2. Whisk orange juice concentrate, chiles, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.
  3. 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.

Tips & Notes

  • 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.
