Chipotle-Chicken BBQ Chicken Recipe


  • 4 pieces chicken breast, on-the-bone, skin on (approx. 2 ½ lb.)
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt, black pepper
  • 3 ripe peaches, cut into thick slices
  • Chipotle-Citrus BBQ Sauce
  • Wood skewers that have been soaked in water for 1 hour

Yield: 4 servings


  1. Preheat the grill to medium.
  2. Divide the peach slices between 4 skewers, arranging them so they stay put during grilling. Set aside.
  3. Rub the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the chicken skin-side down on the grill and cook over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes, turning once during this time.
  5. Once the chicken is almost cooked through begin basting it generously on both sides with the BBQ sauce.
  6. Cook another 8-10 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked (165 on an instant thermometer) and well-glazed and caramelized.
  7. Remove to a platter and keep covered, while bumping the grill up to high.
  8. Brush the peach skewers lightly with the BBQ sauce and grill over high heat for 1-2 minutes per side or until lightly charred.
  9. Arrange the chicken and peach skewers on a large platter with extra warmed BBQ sauce if desired (not the same sauce used for basting though). Note: To speed up the grilling time the chicken can be pre-baked in advance just until it reaches 165.
  10. Finish the chicken on the grill over medium heat brushing generously with sauce. (Any kind of chicken can be used: boneless breasts, legs, thighs, etc.) The sauce also works well with shrimp, salmon, and thick-cut pork chops on the grill.
  11. Enjoy!
