- salt to taste
- olive oil to baste
And let’s start cooking.
You can start prepare the marinade for the low calorie chicken barbecue by mixing up everything except your chicken and olive oil in a bowl.
After preparing the marinade, drop in the chicken breast in the mixture and coat each chicken breast with generous amount of the barbecue mix.
Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate your chicken overnight or for a minimum of 3 hours so that the flavour gets locked into the chicken breast.
Take out the chicken from the refrigerator and cook over the barbecue, turning sides and basting with olive oil till the chicken gets tender and juicy. Your chicken gets cooked within 15 to 20 minutes.
Let’s serve the treat.
Mashed potato may be the best side dish for barbecue chicken but what goes with it also decides how healthy your barbecue chicken is. So swap the mashed potato with freshly cut vegetable salad to enjoy a less than 260 calorie barbecue chicken.
Yes it is tasty, low calorie and easy at the same time.
