Maple Chipotle Smoked Chicken Breast

A sweet and slightly spicy maple chipotle glazed chicken breast is infused with wood smoke in every bite.


  • 4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, plus more for basting


  • Preheat your smoker to 250 degrees, using a blend of hickory, maple, and peach chips.
  • In a small bowl, stir together all of the ingredients-- except for the chicken.
  • Dip each chicken breast into the mixture and use your fingers to gently massage it in. Repeating until all the breasts are coated.
  • Place the chicken breasts into the prepared smoker, placing the thermometer prove into the center of the thickest one. Baste them every hour with maple syrup.
  • Cook the chicken about 3 hours, or until the probe registers an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees. 
  • Remove the chicken from the smoker, to a serving platter. Baste again with syrup. Serve immediately, or store in an air tight container and heat up when ready to serve.
