my husbands words were "this is yummy". I thought it was good too, I didn't grill it because of lack of time. I cooked it in a saucepan with the lid on...some of the glaze burned onto the pan and didn't stick to the chicken- so that was a bummer- I spooned the leftover sauce onto the chicken and that redeemed it. It was really moist and good. If my husband says "this is yummy" without any prompting from me then it must be a keeper. I think I will have to give it another try on the grill and see if that won't up my star rating. We both loved the heat and sweet together
Um, this was pretty much the most amazing chicken of all time. I realized after the fact that I had used apricot preserves instead of peach (no sugar added kind). It was SO good. Everything else I followed exactly. I did let the chicken sit for about an hour in the fridge with the spice rub on it. Next time I might add MORE chipotle to kick the spice up even more. I don't know what else to say besides this recipe ROCKS!
