Wow! Talk about some great chicken! Perfectly crispy skin, covered in vinegar-mayonnaise BBQ sauce. Man, this white barbecue chicken that I made on the Char-Broil Big Easy came out great. We both loved it. It is definitely something different from the ‘usual’ roasted chicken. I opted for split bone-in chicken breasts, but you could use boneless breasts, legs, wings or even whole chicken.
You can certainly make your own white BBQ sauce, it’s pretty easy to do. I decided to use some of the bottle of Lillie’s Q Ivory sauce that I picked up at Jungle Jim’s outside of Cincinnati. The Ivory sauce is thick, but not too thick, and it’s not too mayonnaise-y or vinegar-y. We think it has the perfect balance of flavors, making it ideal for this roasted chicken.
I’m a big fan of BBQ-style chicken on the Big Easy. Also check out my peach BBQ and Daddy’s BBQ recipes.
