Chicken Chipotle BBQ

Chicken Chipotle BBQ
Recipe type: Barbecue
Serves: 2
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts (to 4)
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • BBQ Sauce:
  • 1/2 Cup ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon finely-minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Chipolte in adobo sauce; pureed in food processor
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. For the BBQ Sauce: Mix all ingredients together well.
  2. Place chicken breasts in 2/3 of the BBQ sauce, reserving 1/3 for basting. Roll the breasts in sauce, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 24 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from sauce, season with salt and black pepper. Brush with 1/3 reserved BBQ sauce while it is grilling. Grill until done then remove from heat.

This recipe yields 2 to 4 servings.

Comments: Chipolte, or smoked jalepeno chiles (often sold canned in an adobo sauce), is a pungent and flavorful ingredient. If you want more character and more "heat," simply add more Chipolte to the BBQ sauce.
