Yummy All Purpose Chipotle Chicken

Easy All Purpose Chipotle Chicken


I love simple recipes, and this is definitely one easy all purpose chicken meal that you can make anytime. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, and 20 minutes to cook. The chicken is wonderfully delicious when cooked immediately, but I have also found that it is more flavorful if you decide to rub and marinate a little longer.

So bare in mind, we have not included the time for marinading your chicken.

A big thank you to Jen at Carlsbadcravings for this superb recipe.This is one of their yummy chicken recipes that we really love.

Here's what you'll need below,


Here Are The Ingredients


  • 2-3 chicken breasts pounded thin (1 pound)
Chipotle Chicken Rub
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  1. In a small bowl, whisk chicken rub ingredients together and rub evenly all over chicken breasts. Time permitting, allow chicken to sit for 30 minutes at room temperature or refrigerate up to 8 hours then bring to room temperature before cooking.*
  3. If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
  4. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Once very hot, add chicken and cook, undisturbed for 3-5 minutes, or until nicely browned (or blackened if you prefer) on one side. Turn chicken over, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Cook for approximately 5-7 more minutes (depending on thickness of chicken), or until chicken is cooked through. Remove to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  6. If chicken has been refrigerated, let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (time permitting).
  7. Meanwhile, grease and preheat the grill to medium heat, 375-450°F.
  8. Grill chicken undisturbed for 5-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. (An inserted thermometer should read 165 degrees F.)
  9. Remove chicken from grill and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

And that's it done,
