Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking dish or pan with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together adobo sauce, brown sugar, butter and salt. Use only the sauce from the can, if possible, not the chiles. Stir well until the sugar and salt are dissolved and the butter is mostly blended in.
Note : the glaze might taste too spicy or even a bit weird at this point. Don’t be worried, once baked on the chicken it tastes fantastic!
Place chicken in baking pan. Spread chipotle glaze over the chicken and bake uncovered for 25 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the sauce: In a small pot, combine wine, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, ginger and lime or lemon juice. Bring to a soft boil and cook to reduce to about 1/3 cup. Stir in butter until melted.
Once baked, remove chicken from oven. Pour sauce all over chicken. Add 1 piece of chicken to each dinner plate and spoon some sauce over each.
Food Fact: Chipotle is a smoke dried jalapeño pepper. Chipotle in adobo is the chipotle canned in a tomato sauce, to which it lends its heat. The main thing that this adds, beyond the heat, is some smokiness. I used the sauce only and tossed the chiles. The leftover sauce can be stored in
the refrigerator for several weeks. I’m sure you’ll want to make this chicken several times.
Shopping Tips: Chipotle in adobo sauce can be found in a small can. It’s available in most supermarkets in the Mexican section, canned beans section or international section. There are several brands sold. I used one called
Ginger (in a jar) is a terrific product and can be found in the produce section of the supermarket. Once opened, store the jar in the refrigerator.
Serving Tip: I love serving this chicken with 1/2 baked sweet potato and some roasted asparagus.
