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:


  • 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.
  • To make the chicken, preheat the grill to 400 degrees.
  • Coat the chicken in the barbecue dry rub. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for 3 minutes.
  • Turn and brush with the white sauce. Cook for 3 more minutes. Turn and brush with the sauce again.
  • Continue turning and coating every 3 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes total.
  • Serve the extra sauce on the side.


Be sure to place the sauce you'll be using for basting in a small bowl. Do not dip the basting brush into the full container of sauce or it will become unusable due to the raw chicken.
