The other day Ryan spent the day helping our friends move into their new place. I on the other hand was doing what I do best, grocery shopping, cooking and catching up on some Lifetime movies while Ryan was out of the house. I knew by the time that he was done he was going to want some “man food” if you will. And to me nothing says that more than throwing something on the grill. This sweet and spicy chipotle chicken was perfect.
I’m not gonna lie this is a little spicy. Chipotle peppers are, after all, smoked jalapenos. However, the addition of honey makes the sauce on this chicken both spicy and sweet. It’s the best of both worlds. Want it a little sweeter? Add a little more honey. And don’t forget, the longer the chicken marinades, the tastier it will be.

This recipe is a keeper! I marinated them overnight and they were so delicious! I can’t wait to try some of your other recipes. This chicken was one of the best we’ve ever had on the grill. Thanks!!

I was deciding between this recipe and another for honey mustard chicken for dinner last night. I chose this one ’cause I was craving something spicy, and it is super fast to put together. Plus, I was so excited to pull the BBQ out for the first time this year.
I made a great choice! This chicken was fantastic, and VERY spicy. I loved it, the spicier the better! I served it along with some sour cream (to cut out the spice a little for the man) and diced avocados – that was a yummy combo. Also had caramelized onions and mushrooms on the side, SO good eaten with the chicken. Great dinner, I’m already planning on making it again!

Thank you everyone for your comments! :) Jackie- you could cook try baking them. I’d preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken in a baking dish and cover it with foil and cook for 30 minutes. Then remove the foil, brush on the left over chipotle sauce, and continue cooking for 15 – 20 minutes. Hope this helps!

I personally love spicy stuff. I haven’t bbq’d chicken in a long time. Looks like this may be on this weekends menu!
