Chipotle Brown Sugar-Glazed Chicken

  • 1 tablespoon bacon fat
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon powdered garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce or finely minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil

Melt the bacon fat in a small, microwaveable bowl. Stir in the brown sugar, powdered garlic, and chipotle hot sauce. Place the mixture and the two chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag. Turn the bag to thoroughly coat the chicken with the sweet pepper sauce.

Heat the cooking oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet, reserving any additional sauce in the plastic bag. Cook for 6 minutes per side. Snip a corner of the plastic bag off and squeeze the remaining sauce over the chicken. Cover and cook an additional 6 minutes. Remove to a warm plate and spoon any pan juices over the chicken. Serve warm.
