  1. Puree chipotle, garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, lime juice, honey and olive oil.
  2. Marinate chicken with half of marinade mixture for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat grill for medium high heat and oil the grate.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard that portion of the remaining marinade.
  5. Cook the chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 8 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read at least 165°F.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, baste well with the remaining half of the marinade, cover the grill, and cook and additional 2 minutes per side to glaze.
  7. Serve topped with mango salsa.
  8. Serving Suggestion: Serve with a side salad and potato salad
