TK Table Talk:

What's your go to BBQ sauce? In Alabama, it's a white sauce made of mayonnaise, vinegar and pepper!

What To Do:

1. Chicken may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Make Barbecue Sauce: In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and ONLY half of garlic. Sauté 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add crushed tomatoes, brown sugar, soy sauce, tomato paste, mustard and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Simmer 6 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Set half of sauce aside for serving.

5. Make Salad: Cut tomatoes in half. Dice avocado. Coarsely chop cilantro. Toss tomatoes, avocado and cilantro with corn, arugula and dressing.

To Serve: Divide chicken and salad between serving plates. Top chicken with reserved sauce.

Pro Tip:

Toss the diced avocado with a little bit of the dressing to prevent it from turning brown.
Spice it Up!: If you like a spicy barbecue sauce, stir in 1 tablespoon sriracha to the finished sauce.
