Chipotle’s Chicken

 Meat - Chicken - Chipotle Chicken (1)        Meat - Chicken - Chipotle Chicken (4)

This recipe comes from where my wife found it one day.  He has an inspiring story and you should visit his site and read about him.  He came up with this recipe to mimic the Chipotle’s Chicken Bowl Chicken.  I had never been to a Chipotle’s (living in Jackson Mississippi makes that difficult), but we were in Atlanta one week-end and decided to try it.  Frankly, this recipe is far better than the Chipotle’s chicken.  I wasn’t that impressed with Chipotle’s even though I fully support their ideals.


This is easy and quick and really good.  He has the recipe for the rice that I’ll post another time.
