To make preparation easier, use 4 small prep bowls, 1 medium bowl, a dish in which to marinate the chicken, and a large skillet.
The adobo sauce/chipotle pepper mixture can be purchased in 4 oz cans. Using a pair of gloves, dice the peppers, then put the amount needed for this recipe in a small prep bowl. The remainder of the adobo sauce/chipotle pepper mixture can be put onto wax paper and frozen in 1 – 2 tsp. portions. Whenever you need this seasoning again, just pull what you need from the freezer, being sure to not touch the mixture with your fingers.
