Barbecue chicken that’ll help save your figure

Better Homes and Gardens' barbecued chicken will wow you on and off the scale.

Better Homes and Gardens’ barbecued chicken will wow you on and off the scale.

Barbecued recipes can kill your diet. They often call for fatty meat, oil-based sugary marinades, and crispy skin.
Well, I’m not sure how Better Homes and Gardens managed this, but All-American Barbecue Chicken will only set you back 182 calories per serving.
One key to keeping those numbers low is removing the skin and replacing it with a monstrously favorite marinade of onion, butter, brown sugar, mustard, cider vinegar, pepper, Worcestershire, lemon juice and a smidge of cayenne.
Try to say that 10 times fast. On second thought, don’t bother. Just make it.
While Memorial Day picnics might be over, that was only the start of the heavy barbecue season, and this dish would qualify as a main dish for any gathering of hungry meat lovers, such as me and my husband.
Admittedly, it’s hard for me to figure the serving size, since drumsticks’ weight can vary a great deal. You’ll have to do the math when you know how many drumsticks you’re making and divide that by 14 to figure out how much meat will equate the nutrition values compiled by BHG.
