3 stars--Husband thought it was really good/liked it a lot, I thought it was just OK and that the sauce lacked any savory component/depth (maybe that's how Mojo sauces are??).  Next time I will serve it w/rice fixed w/onions & chicken broth, and add 1-2 teaspoons of chicken stock/soup base to sauce.  I consider 1 canned chipotle in sauce about 1 tablespoon---I used 1/1/2 TEASPOON & it was plenty hot for us, about medium as commercial salsas go.

Chicken in Chipotle Mojo looks wonderful. Any substitution suggestions for those allergic to oranges?
