*Chipotle Orange BBQ Chicken* (Diabetic Recipes)

I just love barbecuing, salads, and corn on the cob. I like all the other stuff too, but I have to watch my carbs and fat. I usually have a little bit of every thing any ways. Even if it is just a taste.
I chose this recipe because it's so good and really low in carbs. It's a bit spicy. My family loves hot stuff, except Keith of coarse. Here is a little suggestion, boil your chicken for about 10 or 15 minutes before grilling. This way you don't burn it while grilling. Of coarse the grilling time is cut down that way. Enjoy!
