I had the chance this past weekend to help a buddy smoke 50 lbs of pork butts and 50 lbs of chicken breasts for a church picnic on Saturday. Eric put the butts on the rotisserie smoker Friday morning and added the chicken breasts a little later in the day.
By around 6:30 pm we were pulling everything off the smoker (along with some ribs a neighbor donated and some Conecuh Sausage from Alabama…the four basic food groups: pork, pork, pork and chicken) and proceeded to pull and sample, pull and sample!
As we were driving to the picnic site on Saturday morning Tonya was lamenting that she should have put together some white sauce for the chicken. We had plenty of red BBQ sauces for the pork and we had talked about our favorite sauces on Friday night. I was first introduced to white sauce when managing Hog Heaven in Nashville many, many moons ago and serving their Kickin’ Chicken white sauce and it’s still a local favorite! We have been working on some variations at the house over the years and have come up with a quick, simple version that the family loves!
Smokey Chicken's Favorite White Sauce
½ cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tbsp Dijon or brown spicy mustard
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
½ tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp cayenne pepper, more for spicer sauce
½ tsp garlic powder
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine mayonnaise and sour cream, stirring until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and chill. Tastes even better the next day!
