Mr. J. came up with this glaze-y idea for cooking chicken on the grill, and oh my, is it ever a good one! He mixes some Cherry Preserves (the nice chunky kind) with some Chipotle Salsa… It’s that simple. He then marinaded some chicken breasts in it, and also used some more as a glaze when grilling the chicken. There are so many others ways we are envisioning using this too! Beef, ribs, turkey, etc.
I think he came up with this idea after making a Chipotle Mayo for some sandwiches that I particularly enjoyed. Now, I’m not one who likes a lot of heat in my food, but this Chipotle Salsa was the right blend of kick, with a delicious smokiness to it as well. Needless to say, we’ll be using this combination of cherry and chipotle quite a bit. 🙂
