How to Make The Best Grilled Chicken
Make White Barbecue Sauce
Mix all ingredients for white barbecue sauce together until blended. Refrigerate until ready for use.
Tip: white barbecue sauce makes a great sauce for pork, fish, and vegetables. Also makes a tasty dip for raw veggies!
Rinse and dry chicken. Brush with olive oil.
Season Chicken and Refrigerate
Liberally sprinkle both sides of chicken with the dry rub. Cover chicken in plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours - or longer if needed.
I've let the chicken sit up to 2 days before grilling! Gotta make it when you have time, right?
Heat grill to medium-high. Cook chicken thighs for approximately 4- 5 minutes per side until internal temperature has reached 165 degrees.
If using bone-in chicken adjust time accordingly.
Tip: Chicken is done when its internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Use an instant-read thermometer to check for best results! Please consult the USDA's Safe Minimum Cooking Temperature Guide.
Drool Over Your Beautiful Grilled Chicken
Admire your perfectly grilled chicken.
Eat and Enjoy!
I typically serve with the white BBQ sauce on the side, but you can also brush it on the chicken after it comes off the grill! Yum.
This chicken pairs really well with hamburger baked beans and layered salad.
Meal idea! Since you've got the grill going, you might as well make Herb Marinated BBQ Vegetables - the sauce is amazing on those as well!
