ちょっと here have a double consonant "t" . In double consonant the small つ is read as a silent speech(which will be symbolized by "_" for this question). Is it... Cho_to or chot_to or both?

  • The double consonant is used to signify a glottal stop. This sound is present in the English pronunciation of "chipotle". Notice how the "t" isn't actually being pronounced? The word winds up sounding like "chipo-le" where the - is the sound you desire. – G-Cam Oct 5 '16 at 18:05

ちょっと is pronounced chot_to, the consonant after っ is always doubled and put on both sides of the silent speech.

Here is a good video which explains this really well I think and shows you the pronunciation as well.

I hope this helps
