Keto Alabama-style White BBQ Chicken

Kate APosted by

Keto Alabama-style White BBQ Chicken – It’s not summer without some barbecue! This is not like your typical tomato based, sweet BBQ sauce. It’s tangy, creamy and light. It was created in northern Alabama in the 1920’s and traditionally served over smoked chicken. It works as the perfect marinade and sauce for grilling.

It’s easy enough to make when you don’t have much time for dinner, and you can serve the sauce over almost any summer vegetable. If it’s too tangy for you, add a teaspoon of sweetener to round out the sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb chicken, breast or thighs
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (you can make your own paleo mayo too! Here’s the recipe.)
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt

Directions

Combine all the ingredients, except chicken thighs. Stir thoroughly or use an immersion blender if your horseradish is not smooth.
