- 4 large bone-in chicken breasts, with skin (about 2 pounds)
- Freshly ground pepper
- 2 chipotles in adobo with sauce (see Note)
How to make this recipe
- Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Season the chicken breast liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the breasts over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until the chicken is lightly charred and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a work surface and let rest for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, puree the chipotles in a blender or food processor until fairly smooth, adding adobo sauce as needed to loosen. Serve the chicken with the adobo sauce on the side.
The seasoned chicken can be kept in the refrigerator uncovered for up to two days. Bring to room temperature before grilling.
Chipotles in adobo can be found at Mexican markets, natural food stores and gourmet markets.
