Easy BBQ Chicken Recipe With Super Secret Ingredient #SpringPicnic

Spring Family Picnic

Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather.  In Northwest Florida, it’s been a perfect mid-70’s as of late, and that means it’s perfect time for outside fun. Of course, along with that perfect weather tends to come a few (or a lot) of showers here and there. Luckily today’s featured recipe, as part of a partnership with Lunchbox and Sam’s Club, can be made in the oven or on the grill. So, whether your weather is nice and you can enjoy grilling and eating outside, or if the weather is a little more wet and it’s an indoor #SpringPicnic kind of day, you are set.

This BBQ Chicken is perfect for any spring picnic weather indoors or outdoors.  The best part it, it’s only FOUR ingredients…yes, I said four!

BBQ Chicken Ingredients

Making this dish, that every one in my family raved about (even the picky eaters), is super simply.  It’s as easy as measuring the wet and dry ingredients, mixing the chicken in, and then grilling (or baking)!

  • 1 cup – Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise *the secret ingredient*
  • 1/2 cup – barbecue sauce
  • 2 – green onions chopped
  • 4 – boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/4 lbs.)


  1. MIX Hellmann's® Real Mayonnaise, barbecue sauce and green onions in medium bowl. Reserve 1/2 cup. Coat chicken with remaining mayonnaise mixture; let stand 10 minutes.
  2. GRILL chicken until thoroughly cooked, about 12 minutes.
  3. SERVE chicken with reserved mayonnaise mixture.

Recipe Notes

Can use Hellmann's® Mayonnaise Dressing with Olive Oil instead
If it is rainy and grilling isn't an option, the chicken can also be baked instead of grilled. Arrange on baking sheet and bake in a 425° oven 20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. this is how we did it and it was AMAZING (flavorful and moist)

This recipe is so easy,  and it’s one that is perfect for those little budding cooks in your home, if you are doing the oven version. My son is excited to make this on his own next time!
