Orange Chipotle Chicken Recipe



Orange Chipotle Chicken Recipe

The citrus in this delicious chicken dish keeps things fresh and lively. We're big on spice in our house, so sometimes I use two chipotle peppers.
Ingredients :
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cold water, divided
1/2 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
4 teaspoons cornstarch
Grated orange zest

Place 1/2 cup water, orange juice concentrate, barbecue sauce, chipotle pepper, salt and garlic powder in a blender; cover and process until blended.
Place chicken and onion in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker; top with juice mixture. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 6 minutes.
Quick-release pressure. A thermometer inserted in chicken should read at least 165°. Remove chicken from pressure cooker; keep warm.
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and remaining 2 tablespoons water until smooth; gradually stir into pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Spoon over chicken; top with orange zest. Freeze option: Place chicken in freezer containers; top with sauce. Cool and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a covered saucepan, stirring gently and adding a little water if necessary.
