Top 50 Potluck Recipes
This collection of healthy potluck recipes is full of crowd-pleasing main dishes, sides, salads and desserts that our fans love. From pasta salad, fruit bars and deviled eggs to baked beans and blueberry cobbler, our recipes for a potluck are healthy, delicious additions to any BBQ, picnic or party.

Oven-Fried Chicken on a Stick
Here’s a fun way to serve oven-fried chicken for a picnic: put it on a stick. It’s fabulous served with this homemade Vidalia onion and honey-mustard sauce, but it’s also great with barbecue sauce or Frank’s hot sauce. This is an easy recipe to double if you’re serving a crowd….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork–and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……….

8-Layer Taco Salad
This gorgeous and colorful 8-layer taco salad recipe is made healthier by using ground turkey in place of beef, adding Greek yogurt and bumping up the amount of vegetables. Serve this salad in a clear glass bowl and you’ll have an eye-catching party-worthy dinner or potluck side in just 30 minutes………..

The USDA recommends that all chicken, regardless of cut, should reach a safe minimum internal temperature of 165° F.

Grilled Chicken Thighs with Summer Corn Salad
Chicken thighs are easy on the budget and great for grilling because they stay moist in the heat. Here, they are paired with a fresh corn and tomato salad for a simple summer dinner. When grilling skin-on chicken thighs, watch for flare-ups. Move the chicken away from the flames and reduce heat, if necessary, to keep it from charring…………

Italian-Herbed Chicken and Mozzarella Melts
Chicken thighs are slowly cooked with Italian-style sauce and herbs, then served on crusty bread slices with olives and two savory cheeses………..

Barbecued Raspberry-Hoisin Chicken
Hoisin sauce along with pureed tart raspberries makes a wonderful Chinese-inspired marinade and dipping sauce for grilled chicken. Plan ahead: The chicken thighs benefit from marinating for at least 2 hours before grilling…………

From the EatingWell website and Magazine its Healthy BBQ and Grilled Chicken Thigh Recipes. Fire up the Grill for these Delicious Healthy BBQ and Grilled Chicken Thigh Recipes like; Thai Wit-Glazed Grilled Chicken, All-American BBQ Chicken Thighs, and Caribbean Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs with Banana Salad. Find these recipes and more all the EatingWell website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.eatingwell.com/

Healthy BBQ and Grilled Chicken Thigh Recipes
Find healthy, delicious BBQ and grilled chicken thigh recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Thai Wit-Glazed Grilled Chicken
This chicken’s sticky, citrusy glaze is a flavor-packed combo of Belgian wit beer, coriander and orange—plus it gets a Thai-inspired spin from lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. Use a bottle from your favorite brewery or opt for easy-to-find Blue Moon Belgian White (and have a few extra bottles on hand to drink with it!)………..

All-American BBQ Chicken Thighs
In this healthy chicken thigh recipe, bottled barbecue sauce—often loaded with sodium and high-fructose corn syrup—is replaced with a homemade barbecue sauce recipe. Use the barbecue sauce to baste the chicken thighs while cooking—but if you want to also serve the barbecue sauce at the table, separate some before grilling to avoid cross-contamination……

Caribbean Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs with Banana Salad
A Caribbean-inspired marinade for these chicken-and-pineapple kebabs is flavored with pineapple juice, soy sauce, plenty of spices and spiked with rum. It’s moderately spicy from the use of jalapeño, but not nearly as spicy as the well-known jerk marinade, which uses the extremely hot Scotch bonnet chile. If spicy-hot is not your thing, leave the jalapeño out or use half. The creamy banana salad is a soothing counterpoint, but skip it if you like……….
