Chipotle Mojo Chicken

Author: Canadian Living

Mojo (pronounced moe-hoe) comes from the Spanish word meaning "to moisten." The marinade in this recipe does just that.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken legs (about 1-1/2 lb/750 g)
  • 4 chicken breasts (about 1-1/2 lb/750 g)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 chipotle pepper
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder

Method

Place chicken in large glass bowl.

In blender or food processor, purée together oil, orange rind and juice, chipotle pepper, garlic, vinegar, adobo sauce, salt and chili powder until smooth. Pour over chicken, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate, turning occasionally, for up to 12 hours.)

Reserving marinade, place chicken on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and cook for 25 minutes. Turn and baste with marinade; cook for about 20 minutes longer or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced.
