Homemade Chipotle Grilled Chicken

Yield: 8 servings 1x
Prep: 5 minutesCook: 20 minutesTotal: 25 minutes

Just like your favorite chicken burrito bowls from Chipotle, but marinated and cooked at home!



  • 2 pounds fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic


  1. Tenderize your chicken breasts with a meat tenderizer or pounder.
  2. In a bowl, place the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and use a fork to crush the chipotle peppers a little bit. Add salt, oregano, cumin, and minced garlic into peppers and sauce. Mix well.
  3. Place all items in a gallon size Ziploc bag. Double bag to avoid leakage if you want. Let chicken marinate for 12-48 hours.
  4. Grilling is the best method of cooking this chicken. Let some sauce drip off before cooking on a hot grill for 30-45 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  5. Best in burritos, taco salads, quesadillas, and more!
