Loved it! I'm from NC and had never heard of white sauce, but my son and I are studying Alabama, and I stumbled upon this, so we thought we'd give it a whirl. It will now be on my family's regular meal rotation. I marinated the chicken for 24 hours with a standard marinade, then grilled the chicken while basting on 3/4 the sauce. Served the remainder of the white sauce on the table. Deeeeeelicious!!!

Whipped this up today for use with either some fried chicken or a rotisserie chicken. It is really delicious and I plan to have it for lunch tomorrow; however, it didn't stop me from sampling it a few times before I placed it in the refrigerator. Love the horseradish along with the vinegar and black pepper. Can't wait to try it on my family. Made for the Best of 2011 Cookbook tag, February, 2012.

So, so excellent! I have my own version of this "Alabama" white sauce....I am originally from Alabama! Mine is thinner and has more vinegar and black pepper. But I loved the thickness of this with the horseradish bite. I made it to serve the way I usually grill chicken quarters or halves. I was delighted to find this recipe here. Thanks so much for sharing!

I made this sauce, and put it in the oven over boneless chicken thighs and baked till done. The sauce baked into the chicken and made it brown nicely on top. Because I used oven I had to keep pouring the grease off as it was baking, but everyone LOVED the flavor of the chicken cooked like this. Thanks :)

I marinated my chicken in this, then also basted the chicken while grilling. I saved some to pass with the chicken at the table, but we really didn't need it because the chicken was already so well flavored and tender. I used bone-in thighs and breasts.

Super good. We used this as a marinade for chicken and shrimp kabobs and they were both wonderful. They were left to marinade for about 30 hours. We also saved some to have on the side after they were made. Everyone at the dinner table loved these and finished all of them, Even though we thought we had made way too many.

This is my new favorite condiment! I mixed some up to have with Tyson Southern Style Chicken Nuggets and loved it. It was also pretty good to dip french fries in. I've also had it with rotisserie turkey breast from the store, and I imagine it would be great with pork roast. I also think it might make a great sauce for Vitello Tonato (poached cold veal breast with tuna sauce), based on recipes I've read for that particular dish. I might even brush it on some cod fillets before baking them. I didn't follow the proportions of ingredients really; I just started mixing them together until I got the taste and consistency I liked. I added a little lemon juice, too, as several recipes for the sauce called for it. I do think it's really quite optional, though. Thank you for this one!

I've wanted to make this recipe for a while. Made it for my family and they went NUTS over it - General consensus -- "IT'S A KEEPER" . I didn't change a thing! I think I would like to marinate chicken in this BEFORE I grill it. I'd like to see the end result. Thank you Oolala for a great recipe!!!

Made this tonight, and ventured out! I poured it over lightly sauteed fresh asparagus, and topped with crisp, smoked bacon chunks spread over. This is sublime! I can see a lot of varied uses. The recipe is simple, directions perfect, and the outcome unbeatable! Thanks, Oolala! I'll be trying this on a lot of things other than "BBQ".
