Subject: Cantino Laredo’s Chipotle-Wine Sauce
I am looking for a recipe similar to Chicken Laredo from Cantina Laredo restaurants. It is grilled chicken breast topped with sliced poblanos, artichoke hearts, and mushrooms smothered in a chipotle-wine sauce. If anyone has a recipe for the sauce, I’m sure I can figure out the rest. Thanks!

Chicken Laredo ($6.25), peppered with spices and grilled on the mesquite range, was simple and well-done.
