Chipotle Garlic Chicken Marinade

Here’s a quick marinade I came up with last night.

Mix together in a medium bowl:

  • 4 tsp Chipotle Tobasco
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 tbsp Orange Juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp sugar

Make several shallow slices in the skin side and place in bowl and turn to coat:

  • 3 chicken breasts

Let merinate at least 10 minutes but probably not more than an hour. Grill or broil.

Mix all but chicken in a bowl or ziplock bag. Add chicken and marinate for at least 10 minutes. Cook on grill or broil.

In just a short amount of time all the flavors of this marinade come through quite nicely. The fresh lime helps a lot and I would not substitute bottled.

  1. Thanks Rebekah! Glad you liked it. I’m already planning to make it again tomorrow.

    One thing I forgot to mention… When I made this I cut shallow slices into the top of the chicken breast to help the marinade act more quickly. Probably not necessary, but it can’t hurt.

    Enjoy!
