|Broiled Chipotle Chicken w/ Creamy Spinach|
Mix the chiles and 2 tablespoons cream in a small bowl. Place the chicken in a large bowl, pour the chile/cream mixture over it, being sure to coat well. Marinate for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator.
Remember that you will be scraping a residue from the broiling pan so select one that can be abused, is flat bottomed, and as small as possible to accommodate the chicken. You want some charring of the cream but it is easy to overdo it if the broiling pan is too big.
Broil the chicken 6 inches away from the heat source until it is golden brown. Turn the chicken and pour the remaining cream around it. Return to the broiler till the chicken is deep golden and no longer squishy to the touch. (4-5 minutes)
Transfer the chicken to a platter and keep warm
Scrape the cream mixture from the broiling pan into a large saucepan. Add the chicken stock and the spinach and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, over high heat till the spinach is wilted and the liquid is reduced and thick to your taste. (~3 minutes)
Season w/ salt and arrange artfully on the plate for serving.
An interesting variation is to add some lemon zest to the cream a day before using it.
