    Adobo Marinated Grilled Chicken

    Source of Recipe

    The Barbecue Bible

    List of Ingredients

    • Marinade:
    • 6 canned chipotle chiles with 2 tablespoons canning juices
    • 5 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1 strip orange zest (2 x 1/2 inches; removed with a vegetable peeler)
    • 1 cup fresh sour orange juice or 3/4 cup fresh orange juice and 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves


    1. Combine all the ingredients in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and boil until reduced by half, 5 to 8 minutes.

    2. Place the mixture in a blender or food processor and process to a smooth paste. Store, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.

    3. Makes about 1 cup; enough to marinate 3 pounds meat or chicken.

    Final Comments

    Use adobo to marinate seafood for 30 minutes, chicken breasts for 1 hour, and whole chickens and meat for 4 to 6 hours.
