4 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. honey
2 cloves garlic - minced
juice of 1/2 lime
1 tsp. chipotle sauce or more
Mexican seasoning mix
Make some slits in the chicken breasts, wash them, dry them and then cut
off any excess fat or gristle.
In a large bowl, combine orange juice, oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime juice and chipotle sauce.
Add chicken, cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning chicken once or twice to distribute marinate.
Light a charcoal fire, heat a large cast-iron grill pan or preheat electric grill.
When hot, drain chicken and dust both sides with Mexican seasoning mix.
Grill, or blacken in pan with just a film of oil, turning once until chicken is browned outside and white throughout but still juicy, about 7 minutes.
