Watch Chef John make delicious grilled chicken. True, there are no cherries in this recipe. But it is undeniably the bomb. Actually, the name comes from the brine, which features cherry tomatoes and hot, hot habanera chilies, all blended together to form an extremely smooth puree. In this video, you'll see how to prep your chicken so the brine really soaks in, and you’ll also get great tricks for adding a little rub to the chicken pieces and for searing the chicken on the grill. Check out the recipe for Chef John’s Cherry Bomb BBQ Chicken. It's juicy barbecued chicken with truly explosive flavor! See more Chef John videos >>
