4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine onion, agave nectar, chicken broth, chipotle chile, and adobo sauce from chipotle can. Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil; swirl. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Add onion mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes or until done, turning and basting once. Remove chicken from pan. Return pan to medium heat. Bring glaze to a boil; cook 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly. Stir in lime juice. Brush over chicken.
This was really delicious, even though I overcooked the chicken; this recipe is going in my "keepers" file. The sauce was perfectly spicy-sweet, and it was easy and pretty quick to prepare. I used honey in place of the agave nectar. I served it with quinoa and sauteed vegetables.
I liked this recipe, but next time I will likely cut back on the amount of agave. It may just be a personal preference, but it seemed a touch too sweet. Still enjoyed thoroughly, just trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the chipotle chiles. Served with quinoa and black bean salad.
