Serving size: 5
Calories per serving: 150
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle peppers and adobo sauces (mostly sauce if you can)
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
4 to 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 to 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon salt (i use coarse, kosher salt)
pinch of black pepper
2 pounds thin cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts (see note)
Place the chicken in a shallow dish or ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the top. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours (the flavor gets better the longer it marinades).
Cook the chicken on a grill, in a skillet or in the oven (broiled) until cooked through, probably 4-5 minutes per side, depending on how it's cooked. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.
Slice the chicken into strips and serve with any or all of the bowl ingredients. Cilantro lime dressing not optional. :)
