It’s GRILLING season! Grills are great for cooking up healthfully prepared proteins, veggies, and even fruit. Give this one a try son – a simple marinade and you’re good to grill.
Chicken Satay http://allrecipes.com/recipe/17511/chicken-satay/
· 2 Tbsp creamy natural peanut butter
· ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
· ½ cup lemon or lime juice
· 1 Tbsp Splenda
· 2 Tbsp curry powder
· 2 chopped garlic cloves
· 1 tsp hot sauce, like Frank’s or Tabasco
· 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into slices
Combine all ingredients except the chicken in a mixing bowl. Place the chicken in the bowl and refrigerate at least two hours, preferably overnight. Preheat the grill to high heat. Weave the chicken onto skewers (either soak wooden ones or use metal), then grill 5 min per side.
As you can see, I used metal skewers. It was very simply to weave the meat on – just be sure to use a potholder or something to grab the hot metal. I cooked mine on my indoor Cuisinart and it worked wonderfully.
I used just a couple of large chicken breasts for this recipe. Use that to base your proteins. The fat content is pretty low as the whole recipe using one fat serving. More so, be aware of the sodium content – even low-sodium soy sauce has a TON of sodium. You might consider cutting that back some.
Get creative…serve with skewers of bell pepper and pineapple chunks (if a carb meal) or whatever you like.
That’s it for this week’s blog, readers! Until next time, feast from the grill, feast from the skewer, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
