Grilled Chicken with Plum, Maple & Chipotle BBQ sauce

Making your own glaze or barbecue sauce for meat really couldn’t be easier, something sweet, something spicy and a background flavour in a blender and you have a quick and original barbecue sauce.

Plum, Chipotle and Maple BBQ Sauce Recipe

You could just as easily do this with fresh peaches, honey and grilled pasilla peppers, or add some caramelized onions if you like. Let your imagination guide you.

Grilled Chicken with Plum, Maple, Chipotle BBQ sauce

(serves 4)

4 ripe plums
2 chipotles in adobo
1 tablespoon maple syrup
salt and pepper
chicken thighs, legs or breast with skin on
1 teaspoon olive oil
fresh cilantro

1. Pit three of the plums and combine in a blender along with the chipotles, maple syrup and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Blenderize and set aside.

2. Heat your grill to high heat and then turn off one side. Pat the thighs dry and toss with salt and pepper as well as the olive oil. Grill over indirect heat until almost cooked through. Start basting with the sauce and transfer to the direct heat, reducing heat to medium. Finish cooking the chicken, basting and turning as necessary.

3. Once cooked remove from heat, cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Pit the remaining plum and slice. Pick the leaves from the cilantro stems. Serve with fresh cilantro and fresh plum.
