Chipotle Honey BBQ Chicken

This recipe was so yummy and the BBQ sauce just threw it over the top. The recipe makes a lot of BBQ sauce so you have extra left over to put in a jar in the fridge and that you don't have to buy any!:) Oh and it is not too spicy in case you were worried.

Chipotle Honey BBQ Chicken 
Serves 6

10  Chicken Drumsticks
salt and pepper
1/2 c. yellow onion, diced
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. apple-cider vinegar
1/2 c. orange juice
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup honey
1-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (depending on how spicy you want it, I used 2)
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 tsp. chile powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

     Chipotle Honey Barbecue Sauce:
Sweat the onions in butter until soft and translucent in a saucepan over medium heat
Add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients.
Let simmer for 60-75 minutes until sauce has thickened.
Puree with an immersion blender or let cool and puree in a food processor.
Sauce can be stored in the fridge for up to 30 days.
Preheat grill or barbecue.

Dry chicken and season with salt and pepper.
Cook chicken on grill over low heat until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Brush with sauce, cook for a minute, turn chicken.
Repeat 2-3 more times.
Remove chicken from grill and serve.
