Honey Chipotle Chicken


Honey Chipotle Chicken

What you need

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, or chicken tenderloins

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil

garlic powder

juice of 1 lime

2 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning, divided (1 Tbsp for sauce & 1 Tbsp for rubbing into chicken)


Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.

Rub the chicken with olive oil, season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder and 1 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning. I like to rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil because it helps keep all the juices in the chicken  and the chicken stays tender & juicy.

Reduce heat to medium and place chicken in skillet. Do not overcrowd the skillet. Work in batches if necessary. Cook chicken  over medium heat for about 5 – 6 minutes on each side.

While chicken is cooking, mix juice of 1 lime, honey and  the other 1 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning.

After chicken is done, place it on a plate and brush with the honey chipotle mixture. You can serve it with your favorite side of vegetables, over mashed potatoes, rice, quinoa or top a big green salad.
