This super basic chicken marinade uses my chipotle pepper spice rub to deliver a spicy ‘n sweet flavor profile, combined with the smoky edge of freshly ground chipotle powder. And while most marinades tend to be more liquid based, this one takes on more of a paste-like consistency. If you don’t have apple cider vinegar – or if you just want to get creative – you can also use a variety of acidic substitutes such as lemon juice, lime juice, or juice from a sour orange. No instructions are really needed, just combine all of the ingredients below and while you shop, be on the lookout for dried chipotle peppers.
- 1 recipe of my chipotle pepper spice rub
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste
