1. Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken

Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken

If you want a tasty dish that is low in fat and calories, try grilled lemon herb chicken. There are lots of flavors in this dish because it was marinated in fresh herbs, lemon juice, and olive oil. That is a full and satisfying meal when served with a fresh salad or steamed vegetables.

  3. Place the dish in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours with the lid on.
