Chili-Spiced Chicken - This Time Done Right!

This is a redo of a recipe that I totally failed last week

Well, I can report that when you follow the recipe as written, it is quite tasty.  Actually, it is tasty enough that I wish that I had made an extra few chicken breasts to shred and freeze for use in other recipes.  There is just enough heat to keep it interesting but not enough to make you look for the nearest piece of bread. 

We both decided that this recipe goes quite nicely with corn on the cob and Cilantro-Lime Rice that you usually find at Chipotle

Again, the recipe is from the Best Ever 3 & 4 Ingredient Cookbook which is fast becoming one of my favorite cookbooks.  If you can find a copy, I wholeheartedly think you should get a copy for your own cookbook collection.
