Chipotle Marinated Chicken



  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 5 chipotle chiles, reconstituted and drained*
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. In a food processor, process garlic until minced.
  2. Add chipotle chiles and process until minced.
  3. Add cilantro, honey, vegetable oil, balsamic vinegar, lime juice, cumin, and black pepper; process until smooth.
  4. Pour over chicken; cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight (chicken may be marinated in a zip-lock plastic bag as well).
  5. Heat grill and grill chicken over medium-high heat, about 8 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in center.

* To reconstitute chipotle chiles, simply cover them in boiling water and soak them for approximately 1 hour. If whole dried chipotles aren't available, 2 canned chipotles in adobo sauce or 2 teaspoon of ground chipotle powder may be substituted.
