Hands-on time 45 mins
Total time 45 mins
Yield Serves 4 (serving size: 2 chicken thighs)
Barbecue sauce is hardly an expected place to find rhubarb, and that's part of what we love about this addictive, tangy-sweet sauce tinged with smoky chipotle heat. Extra sauce can be refrigerated for up to one month. Also try it on pork and burgers.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs, skinned (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup Rhubarb-BQ Sauce
