CHOCOLATE CHIPOTLE CHICKEN

Combining smoky heat with chocolate may sound unconventional, but trust me, it's a winning combination! For a heart-healthy twist, I've opted for chicken in this recipe, but lean flank steak or tofu would also work beautifully. If the weather permits, firing up the grill adds that extra layer of flavor, but if it's too chilly outside, a grill pan works just as well. With just 10 minutes of prep time, aim to let the flavors of this chocolate chipotle chicken meld for at least 1-2 hours before cooking. Your taste buds will thank you!
