Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken Recipe

My Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken recipe and shopping trip have been compensated. All opinions are mine alone.

We’ll be firing up the grill for Independence Day and I promise you my Grilled Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken will steal the show. If you want a delicious combination of sweet and spicy this recipe is it.

My Grilled Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken is very easy to make . It begins with a super easy, sweet and spicy marinade made with El Yucateco Chipotle Sauce.

I’m sure you know how to make Chipotle sauce from scratch, but my rule of thumb when entertaining is to use great tasting store bought products when you can. This will save you a lot of time and stress.

Chipotle Recipe
Serves 4-6


  • 2 oz. of El Yucateco Chipotle Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 chicken thighs




  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the chicken.
  2. Mix until smooth.
  3. Next, pour the marinade over chicken thighs, and allow them to marinate in a sealed bag or air-tight container fo 8 to 48 hours.
  4. Grill.

This chicken comes out so flavorful and by using El Yucateco Chipotle Sauce it saves you like a thousand steps since you don’t have to make it from scratch.

Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken is perfect for outdoor gatherings because it’s delicious piping hot off the grill or at room temperature.

With the Chipotle-Orange marinade the chicken is seasoned perfectly right off the grill, but I always place a few bottles of El Yucateco Sauce on the table just in case guest want to use them as condiments. They can add extra El Yucateco Chipotle Sauce, or dip their chicken in Green Habanero or Red Habanero Sauce. They have the consistency of barbecue sauce, but put a different spin on grilled meat.

The smokey sweet flavors of Chipotle-Orange Grilled Chicken can be paired with just about any side imaginable.
