“This is my adaptation of a Cuban-style marinade recipe for pork - I use it for chicken and think you'll agree that the results are moist, tender, and delicious.” - by gapch1026
Original recipe yields 2 chicken breasts
- Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, garlic powder, chipotle powder, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour marinade into a resealable plastic bag; add the chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
- Lightly oil the grill grate, and then arrange chicken on grill. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 8 minutes per side.

We attempted making a reduction of the marinade but it was, again, a bit too spicy for some. I personally loved the flavor and found the spiciness acceptable."
"The recipe only calls for 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle powder NOT 1 teaspoon--that may be the reason why ThomasG's girlfriend found it too spicy...." See more"
