Serves: 2 Servings
  • Marinade Ingredients
  • 400g Chicken Thighs (bone & skin removed)
  • 1 teaspoon Rapeseed Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle Paste
  • 1 teaspoon Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
  • Juice of ½ Lime (reserve other half)
  • Chipotle Potatoes
  • 300g New Potatoes (halved)
  • 1 teaspoon Rapeseed Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Chipotle Paste
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Small Handful of Fresh Coriander (finely chopped)
  • Serve with Fresh Salsa & Guacamole
  1. Place all of the marinade ingredients (except the lime juice) in a large enough zip-lock bag then refrigerate for 2-3 hours, or overnight if you have time.
  2. Pre-heat the grill to 220C (200C fan-assisted) Remove the chicken thighs from the bag and any excess marinade (reserve the marinade bag for later) then place under the grill for 25 minutes turning halfway. At the half-way point add the lime juice on both sides then return the chicken to the oven. (You can also place the chicken thighs onto a pre-heated barbecue for the same length of time).
  3. Meanwhile boil the potatoes for 15 minutes. With 5 minutes left place a large frying pan on a medium heat with a teaspoon of rapeseed oil.
  4. Drain the new potatoes and add them to the frying pan with the honey, smoked paprika, chipotle paste & seasoning. Cook for a further 5 minutes then set-aside topping with the fresh coriander.
  5. Remove the grilled chicken thighs and slice evenly then add them to the frying pan along with the reserved marinade from the bag. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the juice of the other lime half and cook for 3-4 minutes ensuring the chicken is well-coated throughout then serve with the chipotle potatoes.
