Guilt-free BBQ Chicken

If you haven’t been introduced to Walden Farms products yet, you need to check them out! I won’t pretend to understand how they do it, but all their products are 0 calorie, 0 sugar, 0 carbs, 0 fat. Miracle food! I have been incorporating them into a lot of meals lately, as we are striving to keep our carb intake (and calorie intake) at the proper level. A few local stores carry them, otherwise you can find them online. The best deal I’ve found so far is a site called Netrition. They seem to have the lowest prices, plus they offer flat-rate shipping, no matter how much you order! If you find a better deal somewhere, though, I’d love to hear about it!

So, last night’s dinner was supposed to go on the grill. But the crazy wind we had caused hubby to decide to scratch his grilling plan. And I actually liked the result better than if we’d barbecued!!

1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (cooks down to about 1 lb) ($3)
4 Tbsp Walden Farms Thick & Spicy BBQ Sauce ($0.50)
1 tsp Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning ($0.05)

Combine above ingredients in a zip-log bag and mix well. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple hours (I marinated for about 2 hours). Remove from fridge and allow to come to room temperature. Pat chicken mostly dry with a paper towel. Turn oven to Broil and place chicken on broiler rack. Broil for 5-6 minutes, flip, broil for another 5-6 minutes (depending on thickness of the chicken, you may want to adjust your times).

I combined this with some marinated zucchini from our garden (Marinated Veggies). The chicken was so tender and moist, and it was honestly some of the tastiest meat I’ve had in a long time. Definitely repeating this one! Whole meal cost less than $4 for 3 people, which makes me even happier!
