grilled chipotle orange chicken

My younger son is a big fan of my Chipotle Orange Chicken and asks me to make it on a weekly basis.  Since it’s perfect grilling weather, I decided to make a version of this recipe with chicken breasts that could easily be thrown on the grill –just in time for when they arrive home from baseball practice.

Yes, we’re back in baseball season, this time it’s fall ball.

I like to serve this tangy, gluten free chicken dish with grilled broccoli.  And what do I like best about this meal?  No pots to clean!
