Dairy and Gluten Free Chipotle Apple Butter Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are delicious but can be boring.  I was looking for a way to spice up our dairy and gluten free dinner and found a similar recipe by another blogger.  I played with the ratios some and came up with these Chipotle Apple Butter Chicken Thighs.  They are sweet and spicy and definitely an unexpected combination of flavors.  I used my home canned apple butter; however, the store bought version will work well in this recipe.




Chipotle Apple Butter Chicken Thighs

6 to 8 chicken thighs
1 medium red onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 to 3 chipotle peppers in adobo (depends on how spicy you like it)
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup apple butter

Place the chicken thighs and chopped onion in a gallon sized zip top bag.
In a food processor, combine the remaining ingredients.
Process until the marinade is fairly smooth.
Pour the marinade over the chicken and onion.
Rub the marinade into the chicken.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to over night.
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Line a baking pan with foil.
Place the chicken in a single layer in the pan. 
Pour the remaining marinade over the chicken.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the chicken is cooked through.
Allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
