Grilled marinated chicken breasts w/ orange chipotle sauce

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 Boned and skinned chicken breast halves
1½ cup Beer
¾ cup Lime juice
¾ cup Olive oil
½ cup Garlic; chopped
½ cup Chile caribe; (red pepper flakes)
1 bunch Cilantro; chopped
8 Roma tomatoes; tops removed
1 Red onion; cut into rings
4 larges Garlic cloves
Oranges (peeled; seeded, sectioned)
2 Canned chipotle peppers in adobe
Sauce; drained
1 tablespoon Adobo sauce from canned chipotles
2½ cup Vegetable or chicken stock
1½ cup Orange juice
½ cup Honey
Salt and pepper



Combine all marinade ingredients and mix together well in a nonreactive bowl.

Place chicken breasts in shallow glass pan, pour marinade over them, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours, turning the chicken 2 or 3 times during that period.

Make Orange Chipotle Sauce by grilling tomatoes, onion and garlic until they are well charred. Combine them in a saucepan with the rest of the sauce ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook over low heat for 30 minutes. Transfer cooked ingredients to a food processor and process until sauce is liquid but still somewhat chunky, not completely smooth.

Grill chicken breasts until done. Serve hot, garnished with Orange Chipotle Sauce.

NOTES : This marinade and sauce can also be used for Chicken Satays, in which strips of chicken are marinated, then skewered, grilled and served with the sauce.
