Raspberry Chipotle Grilled Chicken is one of those meals that just sings that summer is just around the corner.  Here in Central Texas we can grill year round, but the fresh sweet raspberry and spicy chipotle remind of late summer evening dinners, sitting outside by the pool as the day finally starts to cool down.

You will be amazed at how easy Raspberry Chipotle Grilled Chicken is to make.  I prefer chicken breast, but I’m sure this would work great on legs or thighs.  When making it for my kids I make a separate marinade/glaze with just a tiny tiny bit of adobo sauce.  If you prefer less char on your chicken, make sure to add the glaze in the last five minutes of cooking or even after you are done grilling.

There should be extra glaze for dipping or pouring over your chicken.  This would also work well with baked chicken, just be sure to glaze at the end.  A great accompaniment would be a seasonal salad with a fresh Lime Vinaigrette.

Raspberry Chipotle Grilled Chicken

Ingredients

  • Raspberry preserves (with or without seeds, really a personal preference)
  • 1 1/2 T Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, blended or finely minced
  • 2 T lime juice
  • 1/2 t lime zest
  • 4 medium chicken breasts salted and peppered

Instructions

  1. Heat the grill.
  2. In a small sauce pan heat the raspberry preserves, chipotle peppers, lime juice and zest until well blended and smooth. Do not boil.
  3. It is up to you if you'd prefer to grill your chicken and add the glaze at the end or add glaze before you start grilling. If done beforehand, the glaze will caramelize a bit whilst grilling.
  4. Grill 7 minutes each side, or until chicken is done.
  5. Serve with extra sauce.

  1. I love grilled chicken with my whole heart! Especially with lots of sauce!!! This looks SOOOO DELICIOUS!

  2. I am heart-broken! I was picking my recommendations for favorites at Weekend Potluck and came to you because this chicken looks and sounds amazing. But… you didn’t link back to one of us. I’m so bummed. 🙁

  3. This chicken looks delicious! We are always grilling and looking for new ideas for chicken. Like the addition of the raspberry with the chipotles. Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays.

  4. How much preserves? A small jar? x Tablespoons? Even a range would help (I have never eaten it before, but it sounds yummy). Thanks!

    • I used more preserves and chipolte than Bevin did because I was putting it in the slow cooker so I used the smallest jar available (maybe 10-12 ounces)

    Could you marinate the chicken in the sauce and then put in the freezer?
