Latin Baked Chicken

One of my absolute favorite meals!!  I love chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, the smell is wonderful.

Yield: 8     (serving size: 1 chicken breast half)

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup less-sodium soy sauce

3 tbsp. honey

3 tbsp. minced chipotle chile in adobo sauce

8 (4 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

cooking spray

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine lime juice, soy sauce, honey and chipotle in a large  bowl. Add chicken, and toss well to coat. Let stand 10 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Arrange chicken on broiler pan coated with cooking spray, reserving marinade. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Place reserved marinade in a blender, and process until smooth. Place pureed marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to boil, and cook 3 minutes.
  4. Brush chicken with half of cooked sauce; return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes. Brush chicken with remaining sauce; bake an additional 10 minutes or until thermometer registers 165 degrees.
