Chipotle Chicken

Chipotle Chicken

We use this as the base protein for walking tacos or burrito bowls. I like to season the chicken the night before to enhance the flavors.


3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. chipotle chili powder

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

1 Tbsp. freshly-squeezed lime juice


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Mix seasoning together in a small bowl. Drizzle olive oil on chicken breasts, then sprinkle seasoning mix on both sides.
2. Place chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Use two forks to shred chicken.

Apron Strings Tips: I like to use the chicken breast tenderloins because more of the chicken is covered with seasoning and the cooking time is shortened. I often double the recipe and freeze half to use in chicken tortilla soup.
