A collection of Rod's favorite recipes

A bit of Mexican heat combines with Caribbean flair in this winner in Quick & Simple‘s Best BBQ Dish contest, submitted by Karen Gulkin of Greeley, CO.

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8  (or a combination) boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves or thighs
  • 2  (in adobo sauce) canned chipotle peppers, seeded
  • 2 tablespoon(s) adobo sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoon(s) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh ginger, peeled, minced

Chili Glaze:

  • 3/4 cup(s) rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  1. Place chicken in a large bowl or zip-top plastic bag. In a blender or food processor, purée peppers, adobo sauce, coconut milk, brown sugar and ginger until smooth. Pour marinade over chicken, cover with plastic wrap or seal bag, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Discard excess marinade.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill chicken for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  3. For the glaze: Combine rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and adobo sauce in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened and about 3/4 cup remains, about 15 to 20 minutes. (Note: You can make this sauce 3 to 4 days in advance and reheat before serving.)
  4. Place chicken on plate and pour chili glaze over the top. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves and serve.
