Number of Servings: 4


    1 TBSP Chili Powder
    1/2 TBSP ground Cumin
    1 TBSP safflower oil
    1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry, pounded 1/2 inch thick
    Juice 1 medium orange (about 1/3 cup)
    2 TBSP pure maple syrup
    2 TBSP chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
    1 tsp orange zest


1. In a small bowl, combine chili powder and cumin. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high. Tilt skillet to coat bottom lightly. Season both sides of chicken with chili-cumin mixture and cook for 3 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center. Remove from skillet and set aside.

2. Add orange juice and maple syrup to juice and bits left in skillet and cook for 1 minute to thicken slightly (until it measures 1/4 cup liquid), stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in chipotle chiles in adobo sauce and orange zest. Add chicken back to skillet, return to heat and cook for 1 minute on medium-high, turning constantly.

3. Serve chicken over rice, quinoa or noodles and spoon any excess glaze over top of chicken pieces.

  • Great flavor, and SO quick & easy to prepare! I served it over a bed of chopped Romaine; my husband thought it would be really good served in a tortilla as a chicken fajita. It's pretty spicy, so some people might want to use less chipotle. Not us, though! :) - 3/12/13
