This chicken is grilled after being marinated in a spicy marinade. The chipotle chiles give the marinade its smoky flavor. You can increase the heat to your liking with your favorite hot sauce. Habanero hot sauce works best, as very little is needed to increase the heat without changing the flavor of the marinade. I think mesquite charcoal works best as it enhances the flavor.

The close up picture of the chicken is not this recipe. Please do not be confused this is not a sauce, but a marinade. Try this for extra spicy. Put you chicken in a strainer and then pour the marinade over it. All the little pieces of chipolte stick to the chicken. Tell me what you think. If I see you all like it I have a fresh salsa to go with it. nothing like you will ever see. Just wait for my next post. Buen Provecho

Very good. I used an entire 12 oz can of chipotle. Instead of a whole cut up chicken, I used boneless skinless breasts and thighs. Since it is winter and didn't want to use the charcoal grill, I broiled it using my gas stove. Turned out great. I can't wait to try them on the grill in the spring. I served along side Poblano stuffed with charizo, shrimp and rice from the food network site. Fabulous dinner.

I marinated the chicken over night, recipe as is, and it turned out excellent. Will for sure make again.
