You Will Need

In a medium bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, lime juice, chipotle chili, adobo sauce, chili powder, ground cumin, sea salt, and fresh ground black pepper. (You can also use a blender or mason jar to mix the marinade.)


Place the chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top bag.


Pour all but 3 tablespoons of the marinade over the chicken. Reserve the remaining marinade. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to four hours. Drain the marinade and discard.


Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat.


Grill, covered, for 7 minutes. Flip and brush with the reserved marinade. Cook for 7 minutes more, or until the internal temperature reaches 160° F.


Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
