Grilled Chicken with Chipotle-Orange Glaze

Smoky chipotle peppers make this quick, citrusy barbecue sauce special. Try this recipe with shrimp or pork chops on the grill as well. Serve with Quinoa & Black Beans and fruit sorbet for dessert.

Serves 2

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 20 min.

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

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill or broiler to high. Lightly oil the rack.

Step 2

Whisk orange juice concentrate, chiles, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.

Step 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.
