This is an excellent grilled chicken recipe that we tried last week. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the recipe. Luckily, I emailed it to several people, so I cut and paste it from my "sent file" to here.

1 navel orange
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
3 minced garlic cloves
(I added hot chili paste to my marinade because I like it spicy!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 (1/4 pound) skinless bone-in chicken thighs, trimmed of fat. (I used boneless, and it was fine)

1. To make the marinade, grate the zest from the orange and set aside. Peel the orange, section it and chop the sections. Combine the orange zest, chopped orange, ginger, soy sauce and garlic in a ziploc bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal bag; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate, turning occasionally, at least 3 hours or overnight.

2. Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill.

3. Remove the chicken from the marinade; discard the remaining marinade. Sprinkle the chicken with the salt and pepper and place it on the grill rack. Grill until thermometer registers 180 degrees, about 10 minutes each side.

Per serving (1 thigh) 129 calories, 7g fat, 2g saturated fat, 0g trans-fat, 57 mg cholesterol, 297mg sodium, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, 16g protein.

I figured it to 3 points a thigh for anyone following weight watchers.

Italian dressing is great for grilled veggies, too! I love sliced zucchini, onions, bell peppers and asparagus all marinated in low fat italian dressing and tossed on the grill. Yum!

I take a whole onion and make slits in it and put smart balance butter in the slits and make a well and put a beef bouillion cube n the middle and wrap it in foil and put it on the grill for about 45 min and it's wonderful and not a lot of calories

Never give up remember it is never to late to start again!!! Stay motivated and please help motivate me!!!!

I posted a recipe on Spark Recipes for Mustard Basting sauce.

I marinade the chicken and vegetables to grill in it for an hour or so and then simmer the sauce for a few minutes and use at the table for even more flavor. It is really light in flavor, but you can add more by using dijon mustard instead of the dijonaise that I use in mine.

I also use butter buds which can be found in the spice aisle of the grocery store. You mix one package of butter buds with 1/2 cup of water and you get a buttery flavor that can be used in recipes or on top of veggies etc. It works really well in this recipe.

I know that you can get Mango Salsa at Costco, at least you can here, and the one I used is Chachies, which I found at my normal grocery store.

I had an EASY grilling idea last week! I poured a huge store bought container of Mango Peach Salsa, over pork chops and let them sit in it for a day and cooked them on the grill for a dinner party I had, they were sooooo good! I can't wait to try it with chicken next!

emoticon With summer just around the corner, it would be great to have some new recipes for the grill! I don't really have any, but hotdogs and hamburgers aren't going to cut it this year!

HELP!
