If you love chicken you’ll enjoy this Chipotle Chicken Breast Recipe. I have to say what makes this chicken breast special is adding the sofrito. This seasoning is made with a combination of garlic, cilantro, and different types of peppers including Chipotle pepper.  This adds a very distinctive smoky flavor to it. I just added a few tablespoons of the sofrito to these chicken breasts and marinated them for at least 10 minutes. This sofrito will only take you a few minutes to make and a couple of ingredients. I shared a link down below on how to make it. These juicy and flavorful chicken breasts are perfect with a salad, over pasta or with my delicious Rice and beans. In this post, I decided to pair it with a fresh homemade pineapple salsa making it a light and healthy choice.
