Grilled Lemon Chicken With Fresh Parsley Sauce
Grilled chicken by itself is boring! But add this parsley sauce to make a savory chicken dinner. Vitamin C–rich parsley, lemon, and a dash of oil and vinegar make a creamy sauce with a pesto-like consistency. This dish weighs in at less than 200 calories, so serve it with a mixed greens salad and roasted new potatoes.
