Grilled Chicken Thighs With White Barbecue Sauce

I know yesterday was the first day of spring. I know it's March 21 and the temperature is suppose to be in the high 50's. But at my house it was 88 degrees F. I am loving it. Time to fire up the grill again today. The recipe came from a magazine a couple of years ago. That's all I know, and it's excellent.

5 servings
print recipe

1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
10 skin-on-bone-in chicken thighs (about 3 pounds)
White Barbecue Sauce - recipe follows

1. Combine first 7 ingredients until blended. Rinse chicken, and pat dry; rub seasoning mixture over chicken. Place chicken in a zip-lock freezer bag. Seal and chill at least 4 hours. I do mine over night.

2. Preheat grill to 350 to 400 degrees F. (medium high) heat. Remove chicken from bag, discarding bag.

3. Grill chicken, covered with grill lid, 8-10 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 180 degrees F. Serve with White Barbecue Sauce.

White Barbecue Sauce
makes about 1 1/2 cups

Stir together 1 1/2 cups good mayonnaise; 1/4 cup white wine vinegar; 1 garlic clove, minced; 1 tablespoon coarse ground pepper; 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard; 1 teaspoon sugar; 1 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons horseradish until blended. Cover and chill 2 to 4 hours. Store in an airtight container up to 1 week.

  2. Your white BBQ sauce sounds so similar to one I use to bake carrots in...YUMMY! Although I love horseradish, the Pres does not so I make things with horseradish for my eyes only!...:)JP

  3. White BBQ sauce, wow! Sounds yummy. It's in the 80s here too, but it's supposed to cool down to the 70s by the beginning of next week. I love the warm weather.
