Grilled Chicken Thighs with Blueberry BBQ Sauce

Yield:
6 servings
Ingredients
  • Chicken:
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 boneless, skin on chicken thighs
  • Blueberry BBQ Sauce:
  • 3 pints blueberries
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 habanero pepper
  • 1 dark beer
  • 1 Tbsp. ground coriander
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. ground coffee
  • 1 Tbsp. chipotle powder
Directions
  • Add all the ingredients for the sauce into a saucepot and cook for 2 hours over medium-low heat. Remove the sauce from the heat and place into a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Strain the sauce and set aside. This can be done up to a few days ahead of time.

  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat.

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides then drizzle with olive oil. Place on the grill, skin side down and cook without moving for 5-6 minutes, until nicely charred then flip. Begin brushing the chicken with the sauce as it continues to cook on the other side for about 5 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and charred on the other side. Remove to a platter and rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with some additional sauce and a Lipton Diet Mixed Berry Green Iced Tea!
