  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Chicken Breading
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 tsp EACH onion pwdr, garlic pwdr
  • 1/2 tsp EACH salt, pepper, smoked paprika, ground cumin, chipotle chili pwdr
  • SweetFire Chipotle Sauce
  • 1-4 teaspoons La Morena Chipotle Peppers, chopped, with seeds
  • 2 teaspoons adobo sauce from can of La Morena Chipotle Peppers
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 small red onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 green bell pepper, cored and seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves and stems
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with a cooking rack. Lightly spray rack with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Whisk eggs and water in a large bowl. Combine the flour breading ingredients in a large freezer bag. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg wash, remove and allow any excess egg to drip off (can dab excess with paper towel) then add to flour mixture. Shake until evenly coated.
Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and lightly spray tops of chicken with cooking spray. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes then move the baking tray to the top middle oven rack and broil until crispy, watching closely so the chicken doesn't burn (about 2-5 minutes). For extra crispy chicken, flip chicken pieces over and broil another 2-3 minutes, or until golden in some places and crispy.
While chicken is baking, prepare the SweetFire Chipotle Sauce by placing all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor beginning with just 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper then adding more to taste (if using blender, rough chop bell peppers first) and process until smooth. Taste and add additional chipotle peppers and/or sugar to taste. Add sauce to a small saucepan and bring to a boil, while stirring constantly. Boil until thickened, about 3 minutes.
Add cooked chicken to a large bowl then pour sauce over top and gently toss to combine.
