Chipotle Lime Marinade for Grilled Chicken

5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon adobo sauce, from the canned peppers
4 garlic cloves, smashed
½ cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup honey
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

In a mini food processor combine chiles, adobo sauce, garlic, lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper.  Process until you have a smooth mixture.  Pour half of your marinade into a resealable bag and reserve the remaining (about ¾ cup).

Marinade makes approximately 1 1/2 cups.

Add chicken breasts to resealable bag and marinate for 10-15 minutes on the counter.

Grill chicken on preheated grill, about 4-5 minutes on each side.  Baste the cooked chicken with the reserved marinade and flip.  Grill for about 2-3 minutes and serve with reserved marinade poured over top.
