chipotle chicken recipe (copycat)

Hall of Fame.  This chicken is amazing.  We had "bowls" for dinner last night and the chicken got gobbled up so fast I couldn't believe my eyes.  I am glad I turned this copycat recipe into a larger batch than what I was seeing online because now I can marinate some more chicken and make it again tonight.

chipotle chicken recipe, copycat (adapted from Brown Eyed Baker)
1 (7 ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1 red onion, quartered
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons oil
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup water

In a high powered blender, puree all ingredients.
Use half of the marinade to marinade 2 pounds of chicken.  You can use thighs or chicken breasts.  I used chicken breasts.  Grill to perfection and chop up.
Add it to a bowl, salad, burrito- whatever you want!!

BONUS:  Here is my favorite blender salsa recipe-
1 big can whole tomatoes
1 jalapeno
1/2 white onion
1 handful cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
Blend ingredients in a high powered blender (I use a Vita-Mix) until you end up with desired consistency.  I used to like mine smooth but now I prefer a little bit chunky.  It's delicious!
