- It can be very spicy! The chipotle peppers and grill seasoning will determine the level of spiciness so adjust to suit your tastes.
- I prefer to use Montreal Chicken Seasoning by McCormick. Tried other brands but this is the best.
- Serve it over your favorite rice. I love basmati (cooked in chicken broth) but lately have been using brown rice. Trader Joe's has a great organic brown rice that is simple and fast to cook!
