  • 1

    In a large bowl, combine chipotle peppers and adobo sauce with honey and vegetable oil. Toss chicken thighs in the mixture to fully coat and season with salt and pepper. Marinate for 20 minutes. (Leave all of the peppers in the mixture if you like spice. If you prefer a milder flavor, add the adobo sauce and only 1-2 peppers with some of the seeds removed to the mixture).

    Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Discard the whole peppers and transfer the marinated chicken thighs to the hot grill.

  • 3

    Grill until thighs are cooked, flipping once mid-way through, about 6-7 minutes on each side.
