I hope everyone’s summer is off to a good start. As you can tell by the title, we have had nothing but rain, thunderstorms, hail, and more rain…..
this is what our Memorial Day weekend looked like…..
so much for having a barbecue and taking some nice food photos 🙁 I finally caught a break mid week and managed to cook my cherry chipotle barbecue chicken. Now you will notice that my chicken did not cook evenly…..
I guess my burners are no longer working correctly. Believe it or not, all of the chicken was completely cooked! Cut into the thickest part of your chicken, or use a meat thermometer to check and make sure that it is thoroughly cooked. The chicken on the left is actually my favorite. That is how my dad has always cooked chicken on the grill, so to me, that is normal! Yes, I like my marshmallows charred and black as well.
This is the same sauce that I used on the Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Ribs a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to see how it would taste on other types of meat. YUM…it was just as good on the chicken as it was on the ribs!!! I made 3 pounds of ribs and 2 pounds of chicken, and still have half a bottle left of barbecue sauce. I did not specify how much chicken to use, because it will vary by your family’s tastes and whether or not you are feeding an army! I served mine with my Hawaiian Potato Salad…Yum!
So make some Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce, grab some chicken and/or ribs, and have yourself an awesome weekend barbecue.

|Meal type||Main Course|
- all natural chicken (breasts, thighs, drumsticks - your choice)

Crispy barbecued chicken basted with a sweet and tangy cherry chipotle barbecue sauce.

As you can see, my grill does not cook evenly. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
