Put the chipotle peppers, garlic, barbecue sauce, sugar, lime juice, olive oil, and whiskey in a food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour the sauce into a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the chicken. Cook the meat for 5 minutes on each side. Let the chicken cool for 10 minutes and serve with steamed rice, olives, and peppers.
