Grilled Chipotle Marinated Chicken

"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."

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