Zing Up Your Grilled Chicken Breast for your Low Cholesterol Diet

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 @ 08:05 AM

Are you tired of the same old grilled boneless chicken breast? Grilled boneless chicken breast is a staple in any cholesterol lowering or low fat diet. It doesn’t need to always be boring. It’s time to spice or zing your chicken up.Try some different marinades and spices. The combination of flavors is endless. Try marinating them in orange juice, lemon juice, or lime juice. Add a little toasted sesame oil, low sodium soy sauce, or Italian dressing. Throw in a little spice, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, Chinese 5 Spice, or Cajun spice. How about a little dill, garlic & lemon zest? One of my favorites is orange juice & Chinese 5 spice which is a combination of anise, cinnamon, star anise, cloves & ginger. It adds a nice little zing to that plain old chicken breast. Marinate your chicken for a couple of hours to overnight.  Then just fire up your Brinkmann grill & grill the chicken like you normally would.   Keep an eye on it…you don’t want it to dry out.   Slice it up & serve it on top of salad. Eat it grilled with green beans, steamed in low sodium chicken broth, on the side. Make some couscous with chopped dried apricot & golden raisins on the side.There is no need for food to be boring just because you need to lower your cholesterol. The possibilites  are endless and only limited by your own imagination. Be brave! Get out there and experiment! Find what you like & stick with it, or just keep concocting.

    What I want to know is why I should care? I mean, not to say that what youve got to say isnt important, but I mean, its so generic. Everyones talking about this man. Give us something more, something that we can get behind so we can feel as passionately about it as you do.
