Sunday Suppers with Lunchbox Love–Alabama White Sauce with Grilled Chicken

There are so many different styles of barbecue around the United States that you can plan an entire trip around barbecue (mmmm, sounds like a plan to me!). Alabama white sauce is new to me and it quickly became a favorite around my house.

Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and whisk well to combine. Cover bowl and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. It will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Salt and pepper the chicken and grill until an instant read thermometer registers 165ºF. Slather the chicken liberally with the White Sauce, turning and saucing a few times. After about 5, transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Let it rest for 10 minutes, then serve.
