  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 can 8 oz. chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (or less if you don't like a lot of spice)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cilantro chopped


  • Put all of the marinade ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Place the chicken breasts into a ziploc bag and pour 3/4 of the marinade over the chicken. Zip the bag closed and keep the chicken into a fridge to marinade. Keep the other portion of the marinade to baste the chicken with once it is cooked. When ready to cook the chicken, grill the chicken on a hot grill until golden brown on both sides. Cook until the center of the chicken is cooked through. When chicken is cooked, place on a plate or in a bowl and pour the extra marinade over the grilled chicken.
