White BBQ Chicken Drums with Slaw



All over the USA, proud citizens of every state have an opinion when it comes to BBQ sauce. North Carolinians love their vinegar, South Carolinians fancy mustard, Kansas Citians celebrate savory and smokey, Texans take a tomato approach….and Alabamians like it white. Their classic mayonnaise based white BBQ sauce is addictive, don’t knock it til’ you try it. It can be used for basting, dipping, or even mixing with veg for a slaw.

    1. Place a grill pan over medium-low heat. Grab your chicken drums. Coat with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and Aleppo chili pepper. Place your chicken into the grill pan.
    2. Grab a large bowl, a whisk, and all of your BBQ sauce ingredients. To the bowl, add mayo, mustard, apple cider vinegar, honey, and a pinch of Aleppo chili. Using a Microplane, grate the garlic into the BBQ sauce. Finely chop the chives and add them to the bowl too. Pour off half of the BBQ sauce into a bowl or mug to use on the chicken, saving the other half in the bowl for our slaw. Using a brush, baste the chicken drums with BBQ sauce. Flip and baste a few times during cooking.
    3. Thinly slice the cabbages, grate your carrots, and add to the bowl with reserved BBQ sauce. Season generously with salt and stir. You can add a bit more Aleppo chili here as well.
