A perfect summertime spicy marinade.

Of course we’d opt for chipotle chicken marinade anytime of the year, but as a summertime sauce it’s out of this world. Rich, earthy, and of course loaded with a medium heat that doesn’t tend to overwhelm most palates. ┬áIt’s easy to whip together, too, with a chipotle peppers in adobo sauce base and a list of ingredients typically found in a well-stocked spice rack and refrigerator. Try it during your next outdoor barbecue or anytime of the year indoors with your favorite grill pan.

Chipotle Chicken Marinade

Prep Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients (minus the chicken) in a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Place the chicken in a large glass container (or large sealable plastic bag) and coat the chicken evenly with the marinade.
  • Cover the dish (or seal the bag) and refrigerate the marinating chicken for 2 to 3 hours minimum (overnight would provide the best flavor).
  • Remove chicken from the bag and grill for four to five minutes per side, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  • Remove chicken from heat and let it rest for five minutes prior to serving.

Notes

For a spicier marinade, opt for an additional chipotle pepper in adobo sauce and remove the teaspoon of chili powder from the recipe.
