You know the saying that “pork is the other white meat?”

You might call this “the other BBQ,”  a white version using chicken instead of pork and white sauce instead of red


Prep takes less than 5 minutes


Mix the dry dressing mix with oil and vinegar


Put chicken pieces in a large ziplock bag and pour dressing over


Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, longer if possible for better flavor
