Lighter BBQ Chicken

Sweat at the gym is sexy. It's a good sign you are putting the work in working-out! Having to refresh your deodorant and powder your face while entertaining at home on a hot day- not so sexy. Summer is hands down the peak of random get-togethers with family and friends since the weather is so nice. I don't know about your circle of friends, but with mine food is always, always involved in some way. Be it appetizers, random finger food or a hearty grill out feast.....

Every one knows when they invite me, I come bearing some really kick-butt  marinated chicken ready to throw on the BBQ. My girl friends know me well enough that it's always bikini friendly; the guys however- the less they know the better....and better they might look! Buddha-beer-belly vs. sexy-chicken-6-pack...... If you are tired of your same old plain chicken, give this recipe a try!

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup fat free Italian dressing
  • 1/4 cup low sugar BBQ sauce 
  • 2 tbsp sugar free preserves of choice (orange marmalade, cherry, etc)

In glass bowl, heat the preserves until warmed and runny. Stir in the dressing and sauce.

Pour the marinate over the chicken, cover and let sit at least 4 hours, overnight being best.

To cook chicken, heat outdoor grill to medium heat. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes or until thermometer inserted reads 170F.

Serves 4 to 6
