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

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub
A quick and efficient way to cook a whole bird on the grill is to butterfly, or “spatchcock” it. When cooking a whole chicken on the grill, try searing the chicken first over direct heat then finish cooking over indirect heat (as instructed in this recipe). That way you avoid the all too common problem when grilling–chicken burned on the outside and raw in the center. For best flavor, let the chicken marinate in the rub overnight in the refrigerator. Serve with lime wedges and fresh salsa………

Apple and Grilled Chicken Salad with Cheddar Toasts
This hearty grilled chicken salad recipe highlights the classic combination of sharp Cheddar and sweet crunchy apples. For a fabulous starter anytime you entertain, simply skip the chicken…………

Herb-Grilled Chicken Frites
We combine fresh herbs, capers, lemon juice and olive oil along with the juices collected from the chicken as it rests to make a simple sauce that livens up this take on poulet frites, or chicken and fries…………….

Storing Dried Herbs……..

Ideally, dried herbs should be stored in dark places like cabinets and drawers. If you prefer to keep them out where you can easily find them, one way you can block sunlight exposure is by using dark colored jars to store your dried herbs.

If you’re planning on simmering a stew, stock or soup for a long time, add some leftover herbs. They’ll add subtle layers and complexity to the flavor.

BUFFALO STEAK WITH BLISTERED TOMATO SAUCE
Many food items can stand on their own, but sometimes you hit a trifecta, where the equal balance of each emulsifies with the other and creates a party in your mouth.
You are going to love this dish. Simple. Delicious. And… easy. Note: I used the Hanger Steak/ Hanging Tender for this recipe, but any of our premium steaks would work as well.
Ingredients:

1 – 1 lb. Wild Idea Hanging Tender

3 – tablespoons olive oil.

1 – teaspoon salt & pepper

12 – ounces cherry tomatoes, halved

1 – teaspoon fresh thyme leaves or ½ dry

½ – teaspoon fresh oregano or ¼ dry

2 – cloves garlic, chopped or 1½ tablespoons

2 – anchovy filets

1 – tablespoon capers

½ – cup white wine

salt and black pepper to taste

Squeeze of fresh lemon

Preparation:

1 – Using a filet knife remove sinew piece that runs down the center of the hanging tender. This will give you two long strips of meat , one will be smaller in size than the other. Or, you can leave whole.
2 – Rub the steak pieces with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Allow to rest while you prepare the Blistered Tomatoes.
3 – For the tomatoes, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan over medium high heat, and add the halved tomatoes spreading them evenly over the pan. . Allow them to cook for about 7 minutes.
4 – Add the herbs and garlic and stir to incorporate.
5 – Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
6 – Remove the tomatoes form the heat while you prepare the steaks.
7 – Over a high heat, 500* grill – grill the prepped steaks for one and a half minutes on each side (smaller half of steak for just a minute on each side.
8 – Remove form the grill, cover and rest while finishing the tomatoes.
9 – Add the anchovies, breaking up with a spoon and add the capers and wine. Stir to incorporate and continue to cook until wine is reduced to half.
10 – Taste and season with salt & pepper and fresh squeeze of lemon before serving.
11 – Carve the steak into desired pieces and serve with Blistered Tomato Sauce and Risotto. So good!
