If you haven’t sat down with some chicken and Big Bob Gibson White Bar-B-Q Sauce then you might want to add it to your bucket list. For those not familiar with white BBQ sauce, there is often some hesitation when it’s mentioned; however, white sauce with its tangy, pepper taste pairs perfectly with chicken.
Diners have been enjoying chicken dipped in white BBQ Sauce at Big Bob Gibson’s Alabama restaurant since 1925. Their white sauce has collected the 1st Place award at the American Royal Barbeque Contest in Kansas City, Missouri.
This is an easy recipe and the whole family will enjoy. Simply follow my 5 easy steps below and you can grill delicious chicken breasts using Bob Gibson White Bar-B-Q Sauce.
Step 1. Season the chicken
You can make your own seasoning blend using many of the recipes that are available on-line or some excellent prepared chicken rubs are Virginia Coastal Poultry Rub, Stubb’s Chicken Spice Rub and what I am using today, Knox Yummy Chicken Rub (all of these are available at Armadillo Pepper).
Step 2 Heat your grill on high for at least 10 minutes
Set all of the burners to “max” and bring the grill to over 450 degrees. We will sear the chicken initially to seal in the juices.
Step 3 Apply a light coating of oil to the grill grates
Apply a light coating of oil to the grill grates which will help prevent the chicken from sticking. Be careful during this step. If you drip oil through the grates you will cause flare-ups on your grill and you could get burned if you are not paying attention. I use a paper towel with a light coating of oil to minimize flare-up.
Step 4 Grill the chicken breasts
Place the chicken breasts on the grill using tongs. Don’t use a fork because inserting holes in the chicken will allow juices to escape during grilling. Grill on high for 5 minutes, then flip the chicken breasts and grill for 5 more minutes. You should now have nice grill color on each side. Next, turn your grill down to medium low and now cook the chicken for 20 to 30 minutes turning a few times to prevent burning. To determine when your chicken is ready, cook until the internal temperature (using a good thermometer) is 165 degrees F.
Step 5 Dip the chicken breasts in the Bob Gibson White Bar-B-Q Sauce
I like to pour the sauce in a baking dish or bowl. With your tongs remove each chicken breast from the grill, dip in the white BBQ Sauce and plate. Let the chicken breasts rest for at least 5 minutes.
That’s all you need to do to experience an Alabama tradition of tangy white BBQ sauce with your grilled chicken. To see all of the steps in more detail watch our How to Grill Chicken with Big Bob Gibson White Bar-B-Q Sauce below.
