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.
