MEXICALI CHICKEN

Serves 4-6

When you buy a chili powder for use in a Mexican dish like this one, you can be pretty sure that as long as you stick with the same brand, it will be about the same “heat” next year as it was last year. Having this kind of quality control is difficult because, first, there are more than 5000 known varieties of chilies, each with their own degree of “heat” and second, the same variety grown in a different climate or different year will vary considerably. The chili powder manufacturers get a consistent product by adjusting the formulations each year.

1/3 cup fresh lime juice

1/3 cup white vinegar

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon salt or to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

1 whole roaster breast

2 tablespoons chopped, mild green chilies

1/4 cup ketchup

Tabasco

In large bowl, combine lime juice, vinegar, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Place breast in marinade; cover and refrigerate 1 hour or longer. When coals are hot, arrange around drip pan filled halfway with water, close all vents. Drain breast, reserving marinade. Place breast skin side down on grill over drip pan. Grill, covered, 50 to 55 minutes, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine reserved marinade, green chilies, ketchup and Tabasco to taste; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and brush over chicken during last 10 minutes of cooking time. Serve chicken with remaining sauce.
