Cherry Habanero BBQ Sauce

I’m sure everyone has had one of those weeks. I’ve had one of those weeks, maybe too. Can’t seem to get anything accomplished and cooking sounds like work. Not good when you are a food blogger. Then our refrigerator goes out on Tuesday. In truth, it has been dying a slow death since February. I am just to cheap to buy a new one until it is completely broke. Well there was no doubt that it flat-lined on Tuesday. “Hey (No Name Company) should a compressor die after 8 years?”  When you open up the freezer at 6:00 am and the ice cream is soft and when you touch the fridge, it is hot: you have a problem. I don’t make big decision easily, so trying to find the best appliances and price became a full-time job the past few days. But of course the new toys can’t be delivered until next Tuesday. Lucky I have a second fridge in the garage and a full size freezer in the basement.

This is the fantastic recipe to go along with my  Cherry Habanero BBQ Sauce. I was a little long-winded with that post so I will keep this one more focused on the food, instead of my rants. Check it out, it’s a good read and you will learn how to make an awesome sauce. This would be a great dish to make next weekend for Father Day..

I am very lucky this week to be co-hosting Fiesta Friday #72 with Naina @ Spice in the City.

Grilled Chicken Breast Glazed with a Habanero Pepper Jelly BBQ Sauce

There is a saying around Ohio and probably used in other parts of the Midwest. The saying goes something like this “Ohio weather nothing better, give it 24  hours and it will change”. Last Thursday it was 81 degrees here in SW Ohio. By Friday the high was 41 degrees. Yesterday it had warmed up to a balmy 65 and I decided to smoke a pork shoulder on the Weber.

Grilling season is here, so today I decided to try a new grilled chicken recipe. The pepper jelly I use in this recipe is from habanero peppers I grow in my garden each year along with the essential ingredients to my homemade salsa.  Habanero jelly is not as hot as you think, but is does have great flavor, especially in this homemade BBQ glaze. Any type of pepper jelly will work with this recipe. Reserve some of the marinade to glaze the chicken as it grills. I served this with simple brown rice and grilled corn on the cob. Gotta love grilling season!

Enjoy!
