Sure you could make your standard boneless, skinless chicken breast on the grill and call it a meal, but why not try and spice things up a bit while keeping in line with your macros and diet? It is possible!

Grilling and barbecuing are great ways to cook your food, make it flavorful and stick to your diet, because those methods of cooking don't add unnecessary calories. Thanks to Jeff Behar for these incredible recipes that are sure to please the tongue, and the abs!

Tasty Chicken Kabobs

Marinating these chicken kabobs all-day or overnight in a simple blend of yogurt and lemon juice makes them succulent and juicy, but the active cooking time is only about a half an hour, so they're a great quick dinner.

For a nutritious side, thread cipollini onions, red-pepper chunks, and mushrooms on a skewer and brush with olive oil to grill alongside the chicken.

As a side to this dish you can add a salad or more grilled vegetables. This will add fiber to this meal helping you feel full.


Soak bamboo skewers in water for 10 minutes (so they don't burn on the grill).

BBQ Pork Chops

Lean pork chops make a nice change from eating chicken, and the leanest cuts—from the loin—are leaner than chicken thighs, so don't feel guilty about eating pork chops from time to time. As with all meats, be sure to trim any excess fat before cooking. These barbecued pork chops are tangy and delicious.

  1. Mix cider vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and chili powder in a small bowl.
  2. Place pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag.
  3. Marinades can tenderize the surface of the meat only to about 1/4 inch. That's why it's important to make sure the marinade covers the entire surface of your meat. It also helps to score the meat (cut into the surface about 1/4 inch deep with a sharp knife in several places) before coating it with marinade.
  4. Pour marinade into bag and cover chops with it.
  5. Marinate for at least 4-6 hours in the refrigerator.
  6. Preheat grill or broiler.
  7. Spray grill with high-temperature nonstick cooking spray before heating; or spray broiler rack while broiler is heating.
  8. Place marinated chops on grill or broiler and cook until done, about 5 minutes per side.
