Decadent 2 Ingredient Grilled Chicken
There is nothing I love more come Summer than cooking out of doors. The fresh breeze, the warm air and the sunshine all make meals taste SO much better- even chicken! With this Decadent 2 Ingredient Chicken, you can season up boring old chicken (breasts or thighs, your choice) and fire up the grill with great results.
As a Lean and Green Recipe to boot (and approved for most low carb diet programs including Optavia, Medifast, Weight Watchers and many more) you get TONS of flavor without a ton of calories. Where else but Stacey Hawkins can you get a 2 ingredient meal that tastes so fabulous!?
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken, breasts or thighs
1 1/2 Tablespoons (1 & 1/2 capfuls) of Stacey Hawkins Flavor Quake Seasoning (no, not just for steak!)
4 tsp Roasted Garlic Oil (OPTIONAL!!! use this (or another oil) ONLY if you are using chicken breast to keep it moist. DO NOT use with thighs if you are following a low fat program.)
Add chicken and seasoning to a large bowl. Toss to coat. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes, up to 6 hours in the fridge.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high heat (about 325 degrees F)
Place chicken on the grill and cook for 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on thickness. Chicken will be done when internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
Remove to a platter, let rest and serve warm with your favorite sides*
Recipe Notes & Optavia Counts
6 ounces of chicken breast. is one lean serving, one healthy fat and 1 condiment. 5 ounces of chicken thighs is one lean serving and one condiment.
* In the photo, I feature raw green beans and garbanzo beans that have been dressed in a little light vinaigrette. This is NOT an approved lean and green side for the 5 and 1 program, but is healthy carbs for transition. Please visit the Lean and Green Recipe section for approved side dishes.
