Mayonnaise Lover's Chicken

 Mayonnaise Lover's Chicken
Jennifer Rytting of West Jordan, Utah recalls: “My father-in-law was looking for a good chicken marinade when a friend suggested mayonnaise with Italian dressing. He added the ham and cheese on his own, and we can't get enough of it! You'd never guess this BBQ is so easy and so fast!”
