Orange Marinated Chicken



  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the chopped oranges, onion, chipotle in adobo, garlic, cilantro, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, and salt. Pulse a few times to make a coarse pure.
  2. Put boneless chicken thighs between two sheets of wax paper and pound with a meat hammer until even thickness of about ½ inch.  Combine the chicken pieces and the orange marinade together either in a glass bowl.  try to avoid plastic whenever possible. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large cast iron pan on medium high heat.  Remove chicken pieces from the marinade, wiping off excess (but not all) marinade. Working in batches, cook the chicken pieces for 5 minutes on each side.
