Chipotle Lime Chicken Marinade
Health Highlights


454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
2 tsp Adobo sauce
1/2 tsp Paprika
2 tsp unpacked Brown sugar
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
2 tbsp Lime juice (fresh)
1 dash Salt


Combine all ingredients in a heavy duty freezer bag. Add chicken breasts and turn to coat in marinade.

Marinate the chicken in the fridge for 2-24 hours.

If freezing, place in the freezer immediately. Thaw in the fridge overnight, or by immersing the bag in a bowl of cold water for a couple of hours.

To bake:

Heat oven to 425°F. Bake chicken in a shallow baking dish for 10 minutes, flip over, then bake for another 10-20 minutes. For 5-7 oz chicken breasts, bake for 20 minutes total. For 10 oz and larger chicken breasts, bake for at least 25 minutes.

Allow chicken to rest at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

Note: To make this one spicy, add a teaspoon of minced chipotle pepper!
