Dr Pepper-Chipotle BBQ Sauce

Loosely based on the classic pairing of chicken and cherries, this sauce has all the spicy, sweet, and savory qualities of a superb barbecue sauce. You end up with a double dose of the one-of-a-kind Dr Pepper flavor — in the chicken and the sauce!

For the best skin and flavor, serve the sauce on the side. The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.


Sweat onions and garlic in oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, 5–7 minutes.

Add Dr Pepper, chili sauce, preserves, vinegar, brown sugar, molasses, Worcestershire, lemon juice, and chipotle; cook until thick and reduced to 4 cups, about 30 minutes. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
