This is my absolute favorite summer chicken on the grill recipe. The combo of tabasco, chipotle, lime and ginger is absolutely perfect. This time, though it was the winter so I cooked the chicken on a panini press that doubles as an indoor grill and it worked out great. I served this with cooking light's chipotle cheddar mashed potatoes and broccoli. My boyfriend loved it - he can never get enough chipotle and this delivered.

I skipped the sauce, halved the oil in the marinade and upped the ginger. This was delicious, with just the right amount of heat. Will definitely make it again. I served it with grilled corn and eggplant.

this tasted great! easy enough for weeknight & tasty enough for company. I marinated the chicken all day. I didn't have the ground chili's, so I just used chili powder. it was kindof oily. would be great on rice, to soak up the sauce.

This was great! It looks fantastic on the plate, and tastes really good. My husband was thrilled, and I've been looking for easy recipes we can cook on the grill. We didn't have any tequilla (!!) in the house, so we made it without, and it was great. Will try it with next time. Served it with a simple salad and corn on the cob. Will become a standard in our house.

We found this recipe to be very average. Despite the rave reviews of others, I thought the marinade was very one-sided and nothing special. I have other chicken marinades I like much better. As for the sauce, welllllllllll, first of all, how can you reduce an oil based sauce?? Reducing is achieved by simmer a liquid until the water evaporates via steam. You cannot do this with oil as it has no water in it...? At first the sauce was just an oily mess that would not emulsify. Fortunately I walked away for a few minutes after turning off the heat and when I came back and stirred again, it was better. However, we just did not find the flavors particularly complimentary or outstanding. I will not make this recipe again.

Yes, this is delicious; just the right amount of heat w/ the chipotle chile. The family loved it.

Nothing really special. I even marinated it for 6 hours. It still tasted pretty bland and it looked nothing like the picture at all. Kind of disappointed.

We love this recipe, it's been added to our dinner list menu. We made it for the first time when the "stepson" and his fiance came to visit. The ginger really makes the difference from other recipes I have tried. With the remaining chicken we made quesadillas. Delicious.

A staple at our house. We have it with saffron rice and a baby green salad with toasted almonds, crumbled gorgonzola, dried cranberries, and raspberry vinaigrette. I double the marinade and add extra hot sauce.
