Latin Baked Chicken

Have I mentioned we’re on a heavy rotation of chicken?  I’m hoping as long as I dress it up in different ways, husband won’t mind too much.  And I’m realizing I need to branch out a bit, maybe even try my hand at a few fish recipes.

This recipe is from Cooking Light, June 2010.

Substitution made, noted below.

Combine lime juice, soy sauce, honey and chipotle in a large bowl.  Add chicken and toss well to coat.  Let stand 10 minutes at room temperature.

Arrange the chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray, reserving marinade.  Bake at 400 degress for 15 minutes.  Place reserved marinade in a blender, and process until smooth.  Place purred marinade in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil and cook 3 minutes.

Brush chicken with half of cooked sauce; return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes; repeat with remaining marinade and bake another 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165.

cartoon-strawberry-9This is the best kind of chicken recipe.  Minimal ingredients, one bowl and one pan, and very tasty.  If you’re using chicken breasts like I did, you will need to adjust your cooking time.  In my oven, this took 20, maybe 22 minutes.
