Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken

Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken is sweet and tangy and the chipotle adds such a flavorful kick!  You are going to love everything about this sauce and it will be a hit at your next gathering!  Thank you to Blendtec for generously providing the Designer 725 & Twister Jar for this giveaway! The recipe and opinions in this post are 100% mine.

School is out for the summer and BBQ season is in full swing at our house.  We BBQ at least four times during the week at our house because we love it so much.  We love being outside and grilling is just so quick, easy and delicious!   I made this Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken with the family last week to celebrate summer.  Or surviving the last few weeks of school.  Both needed to be celebrated. 🙂
I recently got a Blendtec Blender and it is my new BFF.  Seriously.  I make a green smoothie every morning.  My life is just too busy lately for breakfast and a green smoothie is perfect for on the go plus packed with nutrients.  But here is the thing that I love about my blendtec.  It can do SO much more than make smoothies.  It can make salsa, ice cream, juice, soup, and it was perfect for making this Honey Chipotle BBQ sauce.
There is nothing better than grilled chicken slathered in delicious BBQ sauce.  It is such a classic but I decided to put my own spin on it and add a little sweet with the honey and spice with chipotle.  I put all of the ingredients in the blender and a delicious BBQ sauce was ready in no time!
So many awesome flavors combined in this amazing BBQ sauce.  It was thick and coated the chicken perfectly.  I only used two chipotle peppers so that my kids could eat it too and they loved it.  The honey also added a sweet flavor to this chicken as well.
Plan to make this recipe the next time that you grill!  It is sure to be a hit with the family.
