Southwest Chipotle Chicken

This delicious chicken dish is a snap to put together and all it takes is a little bit of planning!  The marinade can be assembled in minutes just before you need it.  Once the chicken and the marinade combine and the flavors blend over time in the fridge….well, let’s just say the results are a deliciously flavorful and juicy chicken breast that you and  your family are sure to want repeats of.   My husband, Dan, who is not a big fan of chicken absolutely loved this dish!  And, I have to say, that’s certainly going some!  Enjoy!!

4 large chicken breasts cut in half lengthwise
For marinade:
2/3 c. ketchup
1 T. soy sauce
2 t. chipotle seasoning
1 t. chili powder
½ t. smoked paprika
½ t. granulated garlic
¼ t. coarsely ground black pepper
1/8 t. onion powder
1/8 t. ginger
1/8 t. ground mustard
½ c. brown sugar, packed
¾-1 c. lemon lime soda


  1. Combine all ingredients for the marinade in a large, sealable plastic bag. Add chicken breast halves and make sure all are coated with marinade. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and place in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. When ready to cook, add oil to a hot skillet or on a hot griddle, and add marinated chicken pieces and discard remaining marinade. Cook for 2-3 minutes to sear in juices, then flip pieces over and sear other side. If using a skillet, cover and reduce heat to simmer & cook until juice run clear. If using a griddle, continue to flip piece over every 2-3 minutes, or until juices run clear.
