Ingredients

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • ¼ cup orange juice

  • ½ cup white wine

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon paprika

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness

Directions

  1. Whisk together lime juice, vinegar, orange juice, wine, and honey in a bowl until the honey dissolves. Add salt, pepper, chipotle powder, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, cinnamon, oregano, cumin, ginger, red pepper flakes, cayenne, and olive oil; whisk to mix. Place chicken breasts into a resealable plastic bag, pour in marinade, and coat well. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade and shake off excess; discard remaining marinade. Cook chicken on the preheated grill approximately 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until the juices run clear and there are no signs of pink in the meat.
