LOW CAL GRILLED CHICKEN


A year before due to heavy work load and scattered time schedule I use to skip my break fast every alternative day. One day a friend of mine who is a dietician notice this faulty habit of mine. Though he didn’t say anything in front but later in the evening when I open my mail box I found a letter written to me with full of healthy wisdom, I am sharing a part of his letter which I think will be a reminder for everyone who want to stay healthy in there hectic lifestyle.
“ Dear- I am noticing you for number of days and today I can’t stop writing it to you as a friend and a guide, as I think it will affect your health tremendously. Eat breakfast every day even if you’re not hungry when you wake up. Skipping the first meal is likely to make you over eat the wrong foods later in the day. Though you should have some fruit juice or fresh fruits , you don’t have to limit yourself to traditional morning fare. If you’re in the mood for a piece of chicken- or any other protein that isn’t high fat- that’s fine.”

Then after a few more words he share a recipe with me- low calorie grilled chicken, that I have tried a number of times whenever I want to add some bit spicy protein in my breakfast , not only for breakfast if you want some thing light and healthy yet delicious in your dinner then this grilled chicken with some fresh green salad and a piece of bread can be a delectable choice. This grilled chicken is extremely low in calorie and truly delicious.
I must say that from that day onward till date I have never skip my breakfast- how can I make a good friend of mine upset, isn’t it? I am sharing his recipe with you all today, hope and believe you will like it.

INGREDIENTS:

Chicken leg piece 2
Onion paste 1tsp
Garlic paste 1 tsp
Soya sauce 1tsp
Honey 1tsp
Salt according to taste
Black pepper according to taste
Oil 1tsp (optional)
Lemon juice 1tsp (optional)


PROCEDURE:
Marinate the chicken with all the above ingredient except oil and lemon juice. Leave this marinated chicken overnight (8 to 10 hrs). Now brush the grill rack with oil and place the chicken leg in it you can brush a little oil if you want on the legs and grill it on high power for at about 10 minutes or until done. If you want to make it bit tangy add some lemon juice while serving. Have it with some green salad ( sprouted mung bean salad or kalimera salad).
