I’ve been blogging this week about easy summer grilling meals that also are low in salt, fat and sugar. Today’s pick is chicken breast topped with a low-salt, low-sugar barbecue sauce like the LocalFolks variety I buy.
Chicken breast is easy to overcook, especially if you worry about killing any harmful germs or bacteria it might carry. But overcooked chicken can be dry and rubbery. I finally found a guide that says cook a breast three minutes per side and use a meat thermometer to be sure it’s properly done inside.
I did that for this meal, adding the barbecue sauce at the last minute so that it didn’t get burnt on the grill.
Add some corn, which we first cook for 8 minute sin a microwave to soften it up, and some asparagus, and you;re set for another easy, tasty summer meal.
