Course: Main Dish
- 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 c. Chipotle BBQ Sauce divided
- Chipotle BBQ Sauce:
- 2 8 oz. cans, tomato sauce
- 3 Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce comes in 7 oz. can, pureed (add more for additional spice and heat)
- 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 c. honey
- 1/4 c. molasses
- 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire
- 1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1/2 tsp. salt
For sauce, bring all of the ingredients together in a medium saucepan, and simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring often. Let the sauce cool to room temperature. It can then be used right away. Reserve about 1 cup to be used with the chicken and store the remaining sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
In a large resealable plastic bag, add the chicken and about 2/3 cup of the sauce. Coat the chicken well, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 24 hours.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, and light your grill to a medium - high setting. Add the chicken to the hot grill, skin side down. Cover with lid and cook for about 5-7 minutes, and then flip. Brush with the additional 1/3 cup of sauce, and cook for another 5-7 minutes. Chicken is done when white all the way through, and juices run clear. Serve right away.
