Grilled Chicken with White Barbecue Sauce

Grilled Chicken with White Barbecue Sauce

For a flavorful twist on traditional barbecue chicken, serve spiced chicken breasts with a creamy, six-ingredient white sauce.

The chicken is seared over direct heat then moved to the cooler side of the grill. If using a charcoal grill, stack the coals on the right side of the grill.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 breast half and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

 

Ingredients:

   Chicken:

•  8 (8-ounce) bone-in chicken breast halves

•  1 teaspoon salt

•  1 teaspoon onion powder

•  1 teaspoon garlic powder

•  1 teaspoon paprika

•  1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

•  Cooking spray

 

    Sauce:

•  1/2 cup light mayonnaise

•  1/3 cup white vinegar

•  1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

•  1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper

•  1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

•  Dash of salt

 

Preparation:

1.  Preheat grill to medium-hot using both burners.

2.  To prepare chicken, loosen skin from breasts by inserting fingers, gently pushing between skin and meat. Combine salt and next 4 ingredients (salt through chile powder); rub under loosened skin.

3.  Turn left burner off (leave right burner on). Coat grill rack with cooking spray. Place chicken on grill rack over right burner; grill 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Move chicken to grill rack over left burner. Cover and cook 35 minutes or until done, turning once. Remove chicken from grill; discard skin.

4.  To prepare sauce, combine mayonnaise and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Serve with chicken.
