Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken

This is nothing revolutionary, but it’s a new recipe of mine for grilled chicken that could be served as tacos, fajitas, or simply over rice.

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo
  • 1 tbsp adobo sauce
  • ½ medium white onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

For serving:

  • 1 tsp fresh, chopped cilantro
  • juice of 1 lime

Marinate chicken in pureed mixture of marinade ingredients (use a food processor) for an hour.

Grill over medium-high heat.

Serve with a squeeze of lime and a pinch of cilantro.
