Quick Recipe
Easy Recipe

Serves 4

Preheat grill to medium–high. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken on grill. If using European chicken breasts, start with skin side down and grill 8-10 minutes per side. If using boneless skinless breasts, coat hot grill with vegetable oil or spray, and grill 7 minutes per side. After the chicken has been flipped, brush the grilled side with Chipotle Honey Sauce. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the chicken should read 165°F.

Chipotle Honey Sauce

2 chipotle chiles **

1 cup honey

1/4 cup water

1 teaspoon garlic, minced

Kosher salt, to taste

Combine all the ingredients and puree using either blender or handheld blender. If you do not have a blender, you can mince the ingredients by hand. Season with salt.

Serve grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes and sautéed green beans and drizzle with chipotle honey sauce.

Pairing: Pinot gris, New Zealand sauvignon blanc, or dry creek zinfandel

*A European chicken breast is a skin-on boneless breast with the first joint of the wing attached.

**Use canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. The recipe calls for 2 whole chiles, but you can use more if you like.
