Grilled Chicken

Grilling chicken instead of frying helps cut down on fat and calories! With this particular recipe, be sure to select a low-sodium sauce and watch how much you add. Sodium is linked to heart-health challenges, such as high blood pressure. Therefore, it is important to keep the sauce amount to a minimum and rely on the beef, chicken or fish for flavor.

Yield: 6 servings


Marinate chicken breasts for at least 8 hours, turning so both sides marinate at least 4 hours. Place on hot grill for 10 minutes each side. Serve.


  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup low-sodium teriyaki sauce
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. red pepper
  • 1 tbsp. garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. Italian dressing
  • 3 whole, boneless skinless chicken breasts
