Grilled Chicken with Orange-Chipotle Sauce

Posted by moderndaygourmet on September 2, 2007

I can’t recall where I found this, might have been Epicurious. It’s so easy and the combination of the orange and chipotle flavors in the sauce is just explosive.

3-4 Boneless chicken breasts
2 2/3 cups chicken broth
2 2/3 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon chopped chipotles
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 teaspoon cornstarch (may need more)
2 teaspoons water

Boil beef and chicken broths for about 45 minutes or until reduced to 2 1/2 cups. Add chipotles, marmalade and onion and boil 5 minutes. Combine cornstarch and water and stir into sauce to thicken.

Rub chicken breasts all over with cumin and grill. The spice rub really seals in the juices. Serve with sauce

This sauce also goes well with pork chops or tenderloin. It freezes great.

If you want to make it healthier get the low-sodium chicken broth.
