The spicy heat from the chipotles (found in the ethnic-foods section of your supermarket) will warm you both down to your toes. The chicken goes nicely with couscous or rice and a green vegetable.

How to Make It

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: About 15 minutes

Season chicken with salt, pepper, and cumin. Pour chipotles in adobo sauce into a food processor or blender and puree them.

Heat a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbsp. oil to pan and add chicken. When browned, about 2 minutes, flip chicken and add onion. Let brown about 3 minutes, then add orange juice. Add chipotles and stir, then add peppers.
Reduce heat, cover, and let cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.

Kid-friendly version: Omit the chipotles and double the recipe.

How kids can help: Measure ingredients.

Leftover chipotles will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 months; use to season tacos or burritos.

(Bonus: With a few tweaks, they make easy family-friendly meals too!)
