- 2 chipotles in adobo
- 1 cilantro sprig
- 2 cups Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Wash and pat dry chicken and refrigerate. In a food processor, blend the chipotles, cilantro, olive oil, garlic, onion, jalapeno, salt, and pepper.
