Tonight we stayed in for dinner and a movie. On the menu was raspberry chipotle chicken and a fruited slaw with a raspberry chipotle vinegarette. For our movie selection, we watched Disney’s “Tron”. This was an evening enjoyed by all the family. That is a challenge when you have kids ages 9, 12, and 15. This dish is spicy, but not too spicy. If you do not have the raspberry chipotle bbq sauce, you can use raspberry jam, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and a splash of lemon juice.
