South Carolina Yellow Barbecue Sauce

My husband and I are complete opposites.

I order chicken strips from a restaurant  for the sole purpose of dipping sauces. I want all of the sauces. ALL OF THEM.

My husband? He orders the chicken strips for the protein and, like, meaty flavor.

Sometimes I take a plate full of french fries and just surround it with different dipping options – ketchup, mayonnaise, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, mayo mixed with sirracha, mayo mixed with ketchup, and the list goes on.

If it’s a condiment, I will dip something in it.

Enter this ridiculous barbecue sauce made from mustard. Oh my word, you guys. I want to bathe in this stuff. I have a feeling it’s really good for your pores. I’ve been using it as a facial every night for a week now. Then I lick it off.

Even my husband loves this sauce and has dubbed any chicken it coats his “new favorite chicken.”

Let me put this into McDonald’s language for you guys: It tastes a bit like the Hot Mustard nugget sauce, but slightly more mellow. Famous Dave’s also has a version of yellow barbecue sauce that this is pretty similar to.

I like to cook chicken breasts on low in the slow cooker for 5-6 hours, shred, toss with this sauce, and then serve on buns. It’s such a quick and easy dinner and everyone I’ve served it to has requested the recipe. Even the barbecue haters. (Yes, barbecue haters really do exist. No, I don’t understand them either.)

You can also brush this on chicken as you grill it. It’d probably make a pretty fabulous pulled pork, too.
