This honey chipotle chicken is SO good! I added Tomato, Cucumber and Avocado Salad as a side and it was the perfect quick & easy weekend dinner. It was an easy and delicious dinner I made last Saturday for me and my husband. I know you will love this one, and nothing beats an easy summer dish that takes less than 30 minutes to make.

This is one of those lazy days, couldn’t be easier dishes. You just season the chicken breasts with salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder and a little bit chipotle powder seasoning. Cook the chicken over medium heat on the stove for about 5 – 6 minutes on each side. After chicken is done, brush each chicken breast with the honey chipotle glaze. It’s easy peasy, I told ya! And the flavor of this chicken is terrific!

What you need

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, or chicken tenderloins

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil

garlic powder

juice of 1 lime

2 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning, divided (1 Tbsp for sauce & 1 Tbsp for rubbing into chicken)

Preparation

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat.

Rub the chicken with olive oil, season with salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic powder and 1 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning. I like to rub the chicken with a little bit of olive oil because it helps keep all the juices in the chicken  and the chicken stays tender & juicy.

Reduce heat to medium and place chicken in skillet. Do not overcrowd the skillet. Work in batches if necessary. Cook chicken  over medium heat for about 5 – 6 minutes on each side.

While chicken is cooking, mix juice of 1 lime, honey and  the other 1 Tbsp chipotle powder seasoning.

After chicken is done, place it on a plate and brush with the honey chipotle mixture. You can serve it with your favorite side of vegetables, over mashed potatoes, rice, quinoa or top a big green salad.
