    Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes. Turn chicken; brush with remaining glaze. Cook an additional 4 to 7 minutes or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear. Drizzle chicken with reserved 1 tablespoon glaze. To serve, spoon salsa over chicken.

Expert Tips

Chipotle chiles are dried smoked jalapenos. They are sold pickled, dry or canned in adobo sauce.

To make clean-up easier, line the top part of the broiler pan with aluminum foil. Cut through the foil in a few spots to allow the grease from the meat to collect in the bottom half of the pan.

When using chilies canned in adobo sauce, any leftovers can be frozen to use another time.

Serve this sweet and spicy chicken dish with cornbread sticks and long grain white rice.
