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!

How To Cook Honey Chipotle Chicken

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 McCormick Grill Mates 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 the 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.

    1. I haven’t used chipotle paste for this recipe. You can probably use it but make sure you adjust the amount because you don’t want to make it too spicy or overpowering.

  1. Just made this tonight and it’s great! At first, I wasn’t too fond of the sauce on its own. It was just a little too sweet (not spicy to me at all to be honest), but I threw it in the pan with my veggies and the cooked chicken and it thickened up quick! No longer too sweet! Fantastic recipe

  2. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner last night! It was a hit! I use the same exact ingridents and it was delicious! Chicken is so juicy and flavorful
    The chipotle seasoning use in this recipe is not the same as using chili powder. I would recommend you get the chipotle season is very good!
    Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

  3. I have everything but lime…can i substitute lemon juice for citrus? Also, i dont have the chipotle one, but Im going to try the spicy ranchero seasoning, seems to have many similar ingredients!

    1. Hi Jill! Yes, you can substitute lemon juice for lime. It might not taste quite the same, but i am sure it will still taste delicious. You could substitute with another spicy seasoning but you have to adjust it to your own taste. It will depend on how spicy the other seasoning is. Add a little bit at first and taste to see if you like it and if you need to add more. Hope it turns out fantastic!
