  • pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 can (7 ounces) chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 4 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil


  • To a medium bowl, add the coriander, cumin, chipotle peppers in adobo, garlic, kosher salt, and olive oil.
  • Add the chicken thighs to a zippered plastic bag and pour the chipotle mixture over the top.
  • Shake the bag to coat all of the chicken. Remove any excess air and zip shut.
  • Place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.
  • When ready, add the chicken thighs to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the thighs on each side for 3-5 minutes, or until slightly charred. Switch heat to medium-low and continue cooking (about 10-15 minutes) until the internal temperature is 165°F.
  • Dice the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  • Serve with tortillas, rice, fresh pico, sour cream, cheese, and all of your other favorite fixings (i.e., lettuce, guacamole, caramelized onions).
