Citrus, Garlic & Chipotle Marinated Chicken

What a weekend! I surprised my husband with a long weekend full of fun, relaxing, eating, gambling, spa treatments…pretty much anything you could pack into 3 days. We had a great time, but boy am I feeling it now. A few days of eating differently after being so good for a while really does a number on me. Back on track today…

We loved this chicken a few weeks ago and I definitely plan on making it again soon. Frank grilled it perfectly – it was delicious. The skin was nice and crisp while the meat stayed tender. I marinated this for about 24 hours, and I recommend that you do the same.

Oh, and please excuse the random pieces of grilled asparagus on top 😉

Citrus, Garlic & Chipotle Marinated Chicken
slightly adapted from Grilling Companion

3 pounds chicken thighs, bone in, skin on
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
2 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped
salt and pepper

Whisk juices, oil, garlic and peppers in a bowl. Place chicken in large ziploc bag and pour marinade on top. Refrigerate and let marinate overnight.

Remove chicken from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Place on preheated grill and cook for around 20-25 minutes.

    Citrus and garlic are wonderful with chicken and this looks fantastic! I’m kinda a weakling when it comes to heat so when I make this, I plan to cut back on the chipotle peppers. Thanks for sharing!
