Method

  1. For the Roasted Orange and Chipotle Chili Sauce, heat olive oil in saucepan and add garlic and onions; sauté until golden brown. Add roasted orange 1/4s. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes; then add remaining ingredients (except corn flour and cocoa powder). Allow to simmer on low heat and reduce by 1/3. When done, strain into saucepan. Bring to a slow boil and add flour and cocoa powder, whipping well. Simmer for 2 minutes more. Reserve warm for service.
  2. For the Santa Clara Grilled Chicken, mix all ingredients, except chicken, in a small bowl. When done, brush mixture on both sides of chicken breast. Allow to marinate 12 to 14 hours in refrigerator. Grill chicken over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side (165°F center). When chicken is done, sauce each hot plate with 3 oz. sauce and slice each chicken breast on bias. Sprinkle over sauce. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
