How to make grilled chicken with white BBQ sauce:

(Scroll down for the full recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. Like all grilled chicken recipes, I start by thinning out the chicken and then cut small slits that crisscross each chicken breast. (This helps the chicken cook more evenly and allows the pickle to cover more surface area.)
  2. Mix vinegar, apple juice, horseradish, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper to make a marinade for pickles and sauce. Taste to see if you want to add a sweetener. Then divide this spice mixture in half.
  3. Mix 1/3 cup olive oil with half of the seasoning mixture to make the dressing.
  4. Put the chicken in a ziplock bag, pour in the marinade, and let it marinate for 6-8 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. Mix 3/4 cup mayonnaise with the rest of the seasoning mixture to make the white BBQ sauce. Put this in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve the chicken.
  6. When it’s time to eat, spray the grill with nonstick spray or grease it with oil and heat the grill on high while letting the chicken reach room temperature.
  7. Then place the chicken on the preheated grill, at an angle to the rotisserie if you prefer cross grill marks. Turn the grill to medium-high.
  8. After 3-4 minutes, rotate the chicken pieces so that they are at an angle going in the opposite direction.
  9. After 6-8 minutes on the first side, flip the chicken over and cook an additional 2-4 minutes on the second side (depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts).
