Grilled Chicken with Honey-Chipotle BBQ Sauce

This is a great BBQ sauce that takes little time to prepare.  Serve the chicken with corn on the cob.


2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup minced shallots
1/2 cup lower-sodium ketchup
2 Tablespoons water
1 1/2 Tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 bone-in chicken leg-thigh quarters, skinned

Preheat grill to medium high heat.  Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add oil; swirl to coat.  Add shallots; sauté 2 minutes or until tender.  Stir in ketchup, next 5 ingredients (through chile powder), and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Reduce heat to low, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, garlic powder, cumin, and black pepper; sprinkle over chicken.  Place chicken on the grill and grill 15 minutes on each side or until done.  Baste chicken generously with sauce; turn over, and grill 1 minute.  Baste again; turn over, and grill 1 minute.  Serve with remaining sauce.

Serves: 4
