I thought the sweet and hot added to richness of the chicken thighs. Nice combinations with the broiler. I left the skin on and the chicken came out beautiful with a lot of turning under the broiler
I disagree with Laraine about removing the skin. The skin holds in the moisture and adds an additional layer of flavor and texture. Perhaps Laraine needs to spend some time learning how to broil meat as well as the proper techniques of BBQ.
Thought that I had maple syrup on-hand. Nope, it was cane syrup. I subbed the cane for the maple and it turned out fine. We really liked the sauce. In addition to chicken, I'm looking forward to using it on pork ribs or chops when we're grilling outdoors.
Excellent, made the sauce and great flavors all around. Will do this again.
It looks delicious and easy to have a try:).

Made this last night with a few alterations. I thought I had chipotles but didn't so just added some chipotle powder to the sauce. I like a nice thick sauce so simmered quite a bit longer than the 15 minutes called for in the recipe. It was delicious. I'd definitely make the sauce again to use on other things. I only had hot smoked paprika so used that instead of mild in the spice blend. It was a beautiful evening so cooked the chicken on the bbq instead of under the broiler. I only wish I had made more so we could have leftovers today. I don't think the changes I made affected the recipe drastically - I will certainly be making this again as well as sharing this recipe with friends.
I've made it twice. Both the sauce and chicken are great! My chicken took longer than 5 minutes per side, too. I left the skin on, so I didn't want to broil it any longer, so after the 5 mniutes per side, I turned the broiler off and set the temperature to 375 and finished baking the chicken until my intant read thermometer reached the safe temperature.
This was fantastic! We live in a condo without access to a bbq and this made me feel like I was at a cookout. It was easy to prep and cook. I was worried about using the broiler with such a sugary sauce, but there was no smoke and no burning. I found the cooking directions to be perfect. I would use this sauce/rub on many other meats, it's a delicious and versatile sauce.
I made it for supper last night and my kids loved it! No leftovers! I used boneless chicken thighs instead of bone in with skin. I also did not use chipotle powder for the rub since I was not able to find it in the grocery store! The sauce was amazing!
This makes for an extremely easy, fast weeknight dinner and got two thumbs up from adults and kid alike. The barbecue sauce is delicious enough that we were licking the pan-- although I did use chili powder instead of chipotle in deference to my spice-adverse daughter. My chicken took a lot longer than 5 minutes on a side to cook through-- since the sizes of chicken parts vary so much, I recommend adjusting the timing as needed.
