Ditch your plain grilled chicken for a zesty, perfectly spiced dinner instead. Grilled Chipotle Chicken delivers a smoky heat flavor with a touch of sweetness. Try Mexican oregano for extra zing.

Yields: Makes 4 servings


2 pounds skinned and boned chicken thighs

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Okra and Tomatoes

How to Make It

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Place each chicken thigh between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness, using a rolling pin or flat side of a meat mallet. Combine sugar and next 3 ingredients; rub over chicken.

Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from grill, and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Serve with Okra and Tomatoes.
