Oh, this Chipotle sauce! Creamy, luscious, smoky, spicy… You would think by looking at it that it has a lot of cream or butter in it but no, It is all veggies and only a little Mexican cream

This is a great way to sneak in veggies in your meal and surprise your picky eaters. Tomatoes, carrots, celery, roasted peppers, onions and garlic. That is the body of this sauce and a great base for a lot of sauces and soups, but what really gives it that warmth and smokiness is the chipotle peppers. Such a comforting meal and a favorite weeknight dinner.

Helpful tips and tricks to make Creamy Chipotle Chicken

I used two chicken breast and made 4 cutlets out of them but you can also buy them already cut. This recipe calls for one chipotle pepper, seeds removed, but if you don’t want a lot of heat (one pepper is a lot of heat to me) just use 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce. You could also use greek yogurt to make this dish a little lighter. The trick is to not let the sauce boil. If it boils the Greek yogurt would cruddle with the heat. Always keep a gentle simmer.

How to Serve Creamy Chipotle Chicken

This dish is very hearty and rich so the best way to serve it is with white rice and veggies. A salad would also be great and crusty bread on the side. Do yourself a favor and dip that bread into the sauce. Just perfection.
