Chipotle Chicken Marinade

Sweet and smoky. A marinade that will kick you in the pants! In a good way of course!


3 tablespoons Olive Oil

2 cloves of garlic smashed, peeled and roughly chopped

1 tablespoon Honey

1/4 teaspoon cumin

2 Chipotle Chiles in Adobo, roughly chopped {seeds and all}

A heavy pinch of Kosher Salt and Black Pepper

Optional: Throw in some fresh lime zest or chopped cilantro leaves.


In a mini food processor add olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic and chopped chipotles.

Let the food processor run until the marinade is thick but not chunky.

Pour over chicken and marinade for two hours {remove 30 minutes prior to grilling}.

Heat your grill to medium/ medium high heat and grill until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.

Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
