Smokin’ Chipotle Lime Jalapeno Wine Chicken
This chicken gets it's complexity and depth from the smoky chipotle and the sweet heat from the jalapeno wine, which perfectly compliments the lime and cilantro. I smoked/grilled this on my Traeger, which again, adds a smokey depth and wonderful flavor. I used apple pellets, but cherry would be a great choice as well.
