Chicken with Tangerine, Honey, and Chipotle Glaze

1 cups fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoons finely grated tangerine peel or orange peel
2-3 teaspoons minced canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce*

1 cup fresh tangerine juice or orange juice
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
3 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
3 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons finely grated tangerine peel or orange peel
1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

For glaze:
Boil juice, honey, and soy sauce in heavy medium saucepan until reduced to 2/3 cup, about 20 minutes. Mix in grated peel and chipotle chiles.

For chicken:
Whisk first 9 ingredients in 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish to blend. Add chicken; turn to coat with marinade. Cover; chill at least 2 hours and up to 1 day, turning occasionally.

Spray grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare barbecue (medium-low heat). Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken lightly with salt. Grill chicken until cooked through, turning and repositioning occasionally for even cooking, about 20 minutes. Brush chicken all over with glaze; grill 2 minutes longer on each side. Transfer chicken to platter. Serve, passing remaining glaze separately.
