Chipotle and Orange Glazed Chicken


It’s mostly just spicy chipotle chicken. The orange is pretty hidden. But I’m okay with that because NEWS FLASH: I’m obsessed with chipotle at the moment. This was a super quick and easy way to doll up some boring chicken breasts and I would be more than happy to repeat it. We grilled it on the George Foreman after a workout and we were hangry for lunch. It was ready fast and paired with some roasted sweet potato and some green beans, it was a super quick and easy and very healthy lunch that would easily make a quick and easy and very healthy weeknight dinner.


Chipotle and Orange Glazed Chicken

  • 1/4 cup orange-juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons unsulfured molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, filleted
  • Salt to taste
  1. Preheat grill or broiler.
  2. Whisk together orange-juice concentrate, chipotle pepper, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.
  3. Lightly oil the grill or broiler rack. Season chicken with salt and grill or broil for 2 minutes. Turn, brush with the glaze and cook for 4 minutes, brushing occasionally with glaze. Turn again, brush with the glaze, and cook until the center is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

  1. This sounds like the perfect chicken for my “mexican” themed nights. The hubby is all about chipotles, so I think he’s LOVE this

  2. Oh that looks wonderful!!!

  3. I love chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, they add such a earthy spicy flavor. Will be trying your recipe soon.
