Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing with you one of my Sister's recipes: Steamed Chipotle Chicken! I love this one, it so easy to make, it has tons of flavor and it requires very few ingredients! It is very healthy too!

Ingredients:
Serves 6-8

1 1/2 chickens cut in pieces (skin and bones in)
7 oz yellow mustard
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (more if you like it spicy!)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
salt to taste
2 cubes of tomato and chicken flavor concentrate (Consomate)
1/4 cup water
Aluminum foil to wrap the chicken pieces


In a blender, mix the water, mustard, chipotle peppers, tomato cubes
and the ground black pepper. Blend on medium high for about 2 minutes or until you get a soft paste.

Transfer to a large container,(large enough to hold all the chicken pieces). If the paste is too thick, feel free to add 1/4 cup of extra water, taste the flavor and any salted if needed. Set aside for a minute.

With a knife poke the chicken pieces a few times each, this will allow the marinade to impregnate the chicken pieces instead of just hanging on top of them.

Add the chicken to the chipotle mustard marinade, make sure to cover each piece with plenty of this mixture, refrigerate for about at 30 minutes,(at least 10 minutes), just so the chicken can absorb all the flavors.

After 30 minutes, grab a piece of foil, and place a piece of chicken right in the middle, spoon some of the marinade over the chicken and bring the ends of the foil together to close it tight. Keep on repeating this step, until all the chicken pieces are wrapped in foiled.  Place in a steamer, and cook on medium-high for about 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked.

If you prefer you can bake this at 400 F for about 30-35 minutes, or grill it for about 30 minutes.


Serve with white rice or your favorite steamed vegetables!

Enjoy!
