Burritos And Bowls At Home With Copycat Chipotle Chicken

There’s a reason why Chipotle is one of America’s most popular restaurants.  Recreate those amazing flavors at home with this copycat chipotle chicken recipe and skip the lines and hefty price tag!

I know some people who are absolutely addicted to Chipotle.  (Husband, if you are reading this, I may or may not be talking about you.)  I have to admit, the chicken really is some of the most flavorful I have ever had at a fast-food joint and I rarely say no when offered one of their salads with a side of guac.  With a spouse who may (or may not;) be one of Chipotle’s biggest fans, can you imagine the points I would score if I were able to recreate those flavors at home?



Thank you to All Recipes, for bringing a copycat recipe that looks sure to please!  Theirs calls for dried chiles, which do have to be re-hydrated, but that is a small price to pay for making my man so very happy.  Sometimes, it’s the little things.
