Why doesn't Chipotle have any seafood

Spicy chipotle chilli chicken from the grill

As you know, the is currently running Blog event BBQ / Grill. Has an excellent subject Ralph chosen there! Grill master Helmut is currently working hard on the device, one Weber One Touch Gold with a diameter of 57 cm and tries to learn new techniques and refine old ones.

An overview of the previous grill history can be found under the heading grill.

A week ago there was chicken marinated in a spicy chipotle and chilli marinade. Absolutely delicious, one of the best grilled chicken ever on the table! Absolutely worthy of the event - but you don't know what's coming. That is why I will only nominate my entry for participation at the end.

The grilling is done on direct heat, which means that the chickens are placed directly over the coals. To prevent the parts from burning, the Chef de Grill has set up two zones: one hotter and one not so hot. This is regulated simply by the amount of coal. The meat is seared first on the hot side, then the pieces of meat are grilled on the not so hot zone.

This polenta tagratin goes perfectly with spicy chicken pieces with a Mexican touch, which I do Food freak owe. It is enriched with corn kernels, coriander, two types of cheese - and this time with the entire contents of a can with pickled red jalapeños. The gratin is also very tasty as a vegetarian main meal, then I would serve it with a salad.

Wang Bo was so impressed with the recipe that he really wanted detailed instructions from me, which he immediately translated into Chinese. I have him a can for that Chipotles en adobo and leave some of my stash of Penzey’s chili powder. * Happy * - I can hope for more supplies 🙂 Will the chicken soon be sizzling on a Chinese grill?
