Have you ever had Alabama white sauce? It's Alabama's version of barbecue sauce and it's utterly divine. It's tangy and a little sweet and very creamy.


For the white sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
For the chicken:
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup barbecue dry rub


  1. To prepare the white sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl or mason jar. Stir to combine and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before using.
  2. To make the chicken, preheat the grill to 400 degrees.
  3. Coat the chicken in the barbecue dry rub. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Turn and brush with the white sauce. Cook for 3 more minutes. Turn and brush with the sauce again.
  5. Continue turning and coating every 3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes total.
  6. Serve the extra sauce on the side.
