White Barbecue Chicken

At the beach last week we made one of my husband’s favorite meals: White Barbecue Chicken on the grill. Taken from an old Southern Living cookbook of my mother-in-law’s, this super easy recipe uses mainly pantry items and tastes different yet delicious. The perfect main dish for a red, white and blue meal!

(Our photographer is busy unpacking today and I can’t take a decent picture to save my life, so you are just going to have to take my word for it that this chicken looks and tastes super yummy!)


1 ½ cups mayonnaise

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons white wine Worcestershire sauce*

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts

I like to double the sauce, and use one third to marinade the chicken, one third for basting, and the last third to serve at the table. Score chicken and marinade for a few hours. To keep chicken from drying out, I cook it in the oven at 375 degrees and throw on the grill at the last minute. Serve with lots of extra sauce!

*This product is now called Lea & Perrins White Wine Worcestershire Marinade for Chicken but I have been unable to find it in my local store. To make your own decent substitute combine:

1 1/2 tablespoons white cooking wine

1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt
