Take-out Tuesday, Ranch Chicken with Alabama White Sauce

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


You can make the sauce in the same measuring cup you mixed the dressing in

Mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper

Alabama White Sauce!  Delicious on grilled meats!  Serve the chicken with extra sauce on the side~

Easier than buying a bucket of chicken!
