This is another recipe from the September/October 2009 edition of "Cooking With Paula Deen". I believe there is only one more recipe that I want to make in this edition.
I was going to make this for dinner Wednesday, but never got to. I can't make it Thursday night either. I had the meat in the refrigerator marinating. I got home too late from work and then had to turn around to go to a Boy Scout committee meeting. I went ahead and cooked the meat inside.
I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts since that is what I had. It worked good. I used Coke Zero and low sugar marmalade.
I tasted a small bite of chicken. It was very good and spicy! This was very good in a salad and I put some in a tortilla...real good that way too.
1 1/2 cups cola flavored carbonated beverage 1/2 cup orange marmalade 1/4 cup cider vinegar 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce 2 T adobo sauce from chiptole peppers 2 1/2 lbs chicken legs 2 1/2 lbs chicken wings
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine, cola-flavored beverage, marmalade, vinegar, chiptole peppers, and adobo sauce. Add chicken. Seal, and refrigerate for 8 hours, or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Spray grill rack with nonstick nonflammable cooking spray.
Removed chicken from marinade, reserving marinade. Grill chicken, covered with grill likd, for 12-15 minutes, turning frequently, or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion of leg registers 180 degrees.
Pour reserved marninade into a grill-safe saucepan. Grill for 15-20 minutes, or until marniade is reduced to 1 cup. Brush sauce on chicken before serving.
I am a single mom with two kids - a 16 year old son who lives with me and a 27 year old daughter who lives less than mile away. I like to cook and I love to try new dishes. I especially love when either kids spends time in the kitchen with me.
