Chipotle Honey-Glazed Chicken #SRC

Hi Everyone,

Today is Secret Recipe Monday!  Today’s assignment was for me to find a delicious recipe to share with you from A Spoonful of Thyme.  I had a hard time finding a recipe this month because everything sounded wonderful.  I had so many pages from A Spoonful of Thyme opened on my page, for days.  I debated between the Hassleback Potatoes, Rhubarb Muffins with Almond Streusel Topping and Savory Cheese and Chive Bread, but my heart was calling out to the Chipotle Honey Glazed Chicken.  I think I made a great choice!!

Chipotle-Honey Glazed Chicken

The chicken is amazing!  It’s moist, tender and the sauce, oh don’t get me going on the sauce.  It’s sticky sweet with a kick of heat!  Hey, that rhymes!  lol   I loved the glaze so much that I added it to my sweet potatoes!  So perfect!  I did change the recipe up just a tad bit because my Husband is not a fan of Chipotle.  The man can eat hotter the H-E double hockey stick wings, but he doesn’t like chipotle chicken.  What the heck?  He said it was too spicy for him.  He’s crazy!  I knew he would say that, so I omitted the olive oil and added freshly squeezed orange juice to tame the heat and I cut back on the chipotle pepper.  It had a kick of heat but it wasn’t hot!!!  I LOVED it!  LOVED it!  I am so making this recipe again!!

The recipe was super quick and easy to put together,  the longest time was letting the glaze rest for 30 minutes, but the rest was quick.  Just pop it on the grill, add some glaze and in about 15 minutes, dinner is done.  I cooked it with my sweet potato chips.  If you haven’t had those, I cut the potato in very thin pieces, and place it on the grill.  Flip it in about 2 to 3 minutes, cook for a few minutes more and it’s done!  The glaze is so perfect with the sweet potatoes!!
