Chipotle-Lime Rub (for grilled chicken)
Coat the chicken pieces with this spicy paste while the grill is heating. Brush on any extra during grilling. Serve with the Cucumber-Grape Salsa or your favorite salsa.
Yields about 1 cup; enough for 1 chicken.
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
3 to 4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
2 chipotles (from a can of chipotles in adobo), minced
2 Tbs. adobo sauce (from the can of chipotles)
1 Tbs. ground coriander
1/4 cup olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Put the chicken pieces in a nonreactive dish or a large zip-top bag and pour the sauce over them. With your hands, lift the skin of the chicken pieces a bit so that the rub can get underneath and rub the pieces all over with the seasonings. Refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
