Best recipe yet. It came out perfect and definitely not mushy! It’s pinned and saved for next time.
Would I be able to do this on a skillet on stove? Don’t have a grill. 🙁
You could try baking it in your oven! Make the sauce, add your chicken to a greased 9×13 pan and then lather the sauce on the chicken. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes or until the chicken has reached 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Let me know how it turns out!
Love the BBQ sauce. Marinated our thighs over night and saved a little to baste. Then grilled the next night and it was amazing. Great flavor! A new staple.
Didn’t know that making this would be so quick and easy. Perfect for making a burrito. Thank you for the recipe!
I’m so glad to hear that you loved it!
This is amazing! We arent eating it for a couple more hours and I have yet to put in the coconut milk. But what I have tasted is awesome! Thanks for the recipe!!!
The bbq lacquer on that chicken looks to die for.
I am from Germany, when I was a little child, my family was invited by american friends for BBQ. I tasted the first time original spareribs and chicken wings. There was a BBQ sauce on, I fell in love with.
The friends left back home to america and we never saw us again. This is 30 years ago and I tried so often to get that perfect BBQ sauce.
Now I got it. Thanx so much for that reciepe, I made it the second time now, and I love it!!!
very tasty and quick.
At what point do you add the chipotle peppers? Are they supposed to be blended into the sauce?
There is not a chipotle sauce, you are making the sauce to be a chipotle sauce. By blending everything in the ingredients together you are making a sauce that is likened to a chipotle sauce.
I also do not understand when to add the peppers
These peppers come in a can! Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are the label you want to look for! You will blend these up with the other ingredients.
I didn’t have a grill so I baked/roasted them in the oven and they were GREAT! Thanks for the recipe!
This is on my grill right now! It smells AMAZING! Can’t wait till its ready to eat!
This looks very yummy and I love the BBQ sauce. Planning to try this on this weekend. Thanks for sharing this !
This sauce is wonderful! Used 2 chipotle peppers and it was plenty spicy! We had it hot the first night and the 2nd night had it cold for a picnic dinner at a concert. Will be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!
In step one for the Honey Chipotle BBQ Chicken I believe you skipped adding the chipotles after the ketchup…
Hey! at what point/how do you use the chipotle peppers? I don’t see anything in the instructions about them. Thanks!
I love the tastes of spicy sweet sauce on the grill. This sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing.
Wishes for tasty dishes, Linda
