It is hard to believe that in just a few short weeks the school year will be upon us again! Anyone else wondering where the summer went to?
Of course, grilling season is still here. Just because the back-to-school sales are now in full swing doesn't mean that the fall temps have arrived here yet. We are still sporting 70 and 80 degree days here, so that means plenty of grilling days left for now. ;)
I actually made this Mango Chipotle BBQ Sauce for the first time for the 4th of July barbecue we hosted for my family. We grilled half the chicken with this sweet, sticky, & slightly spicy BBQ sauce and the other half of the chicken we marinated all day in my Basil Balsamic Marinade. Both were a huge hit with my family. Maybe the Mango Chipotle BBQ sauced chicken was just slightly more popular.
