4 (8- to 10-ounce) skinless bone-in chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup sour cream
2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Brush chicken with melted butter; sprinkle with taco seasoning. Place chicken onto grill; close lid. Grill, turning occasionally, 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches at least 165°F, is no longer pink and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.

Combine sour cream, chiles, milk and salt in bowl.

Spoon sour cream mixture over grilled chicken; sprinkle with cilantro.

Recipe Tip

To store leftover chiles, pour remainder of can into resealable plastic freezer bag. Press out air; tightly seal bag. Place bag into freezer, pressing chiles into a single layer. Once frozen, break off one chile at a time as needed.
