Sweet Home Alabama

Posted on


Remember that scene from the movie “Forrest Gump” where he is dancing to the song “Sweet Home Alabama”?  I love that scene.  Carefree, uninhibited, happy.  What a great feeling.  He danced in front of the window without a care in the world, without being judged, without being critiqued.  Just a great feel-good moment.  We should all have a few moments like that.  

So what does that moment have to do with a recipe? Probably not much.  My thoughts tend to wander when I write, and the fact that this Grilled Chicken with White BBQ Sauce is something generally only found in Northern Alabama led my wandering mind to that movie.  This BBQ sauce is something completely different than what you would expect for BBQ sauce.  It’s a mayonnaise based sauce and very tangy.  We were pleasantly surprised at how good this tasted. It’s truly finger-licking good.  So, after you cook and eat this chicken, dance like no one is watching.  Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care.  Be happy!

4 bone-in chicken breasts
1 C mayonnaise
1/3 C apple cider vinegar
1/4 C lemon juice
1 T minced garlic
1 T prepared horseradish
1 T black pepper
1 T spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Mix together all of the sauce ingredients with a whisk.  Divide the sauce in half.  Prepare your grill, either charcoal or gas. Brush half of the sauce on both sides of each chicken breast. Cook over direct heat for 10 minutes on each side.  Then cook over indirect heat for 10-15 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers 165 degrees.  Let it rest for about five minutes.  Serve with the remaining sauce.
