Firecracker Chicken

Firecracker Chicken

4 – 6 Servings

Chicken

4 – 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

½ teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

1 teaspoon granulated onion

¼ – ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon oil

Sauce Ingredients

¼ cup maple syrup

1 medium – large chipotle pepper in adobo sauce

3 tablespoons adobo sauce

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

½ teaspoon butter

2 garlic cloves

¼ cup light brown sugar

Chicken Directions

Combine the sea salt, granulated garlic, granulated onion and cayenne pepper then season chicken thoroughly with it.  Let the chicken marinate in the seasoning at least an hour or overnight.
To bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or wipe a sheet pan lightly with oil. Place breast on pan and bake 40 – 45 minutes (depending on size of breast) or when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. 

To grill: Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil. Cook On the prepared grill for 12 minutes per side, or until chicken juice is no longer pink. Once the juice runs clear and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit you are ready to top chicken with Firecracker Sauce.

Sauce Directions

In a blender or food processor, combine the maple syrup, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, apple cider vinegar, butter, garlic and light brown sugar and process until smooth. Transfer product to a small sauce pan and simmer over medium heat. Allow it to come to a boil, reduce heat to a low simmer. Leave it simmering until chicken is done, stirring occasionally. When chicken is ready, drizzle the sauce over it and serve.
