Spicy Chipotle Chicken with Peach Salsa

Ingredients

Spicy Chipotle Chicken with Peach Salsa
Ingredients for 3 servings

  • 1lb raw chicken breast
  • 4 tablespoons chipotle in adobo
  • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Everyday garlicky herb seasoning
    • OR 2 teaspoons onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of pepper
Steps
  1. Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and add to a bowl.  Add the remaining ingredients and rub all over the chicken.  Let the chicken marinate for at least 20 minutes (or overnight covered in the fridge).  When ready to cook, allow the chicken to rest at room temperature for 10 – 15 minutes to allow for more even cooking which results in a juicier chicken.
  2. Set a griddle or carbon steel pan on medium high heat.  Once hot, spray with avocado oil and add the chicken.  Cook for 6 – 8 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear.
