Here's what I cooked up last night. It sure tasted mighty *****!

2 to 3 canned chipotle chiles (in adobo sauce), finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
1 1/4 cups heavy cream or whipping cream
4 medium-large (about 1 1/3 pounds) skinless and boneless chicken-breast halves
1/4 cup chicken stock, preferably homemade
6 cups (about 10 ounces) spinach, stems removed, well rinsed

Place the chopped canned chipotles and 1/4 cup thick cream in a
small bowl, and mix to combine.

Place the chicken in a large bowl, and pour the chipotle mixture over
it, making sure to coat the chicken well. Cover with plastic wrap, and
transfer dish to the refrigerator. Marinate the chicken 2 to 3 hours.

After the chicken has marinated, remove the chicken from sauce and reserve the sauce. Smoke or grill chicken breasts.

Simmer the reserved sauce, the chicken stock and the remaining cream.

Add the spinach and heat until spinach has wilted and the cream
has reduced and thickened.

Season to taste.

Leftover smoked chicken works well for this recipe as well.

That looks great. I love chipotle chilies. The work so well in cooking.

I read a good tip to freeze the left over chilies. On a cookie sheet spoon them out one at a time so that they do not touch. Then after the chilies are frozen transfer them to a zip top bag. This way you can find an excuse to slip them in any kind of cooking.
