    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 :)


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
