Who doesn’t love a great summer barbecue? Even if the weather doesn’t hold up, there’s nothing better to get you in the summer mood then gathering your friends and family together and starting up the barbecue.
Plus, barbecuing your food gives you the chance to try all sorts of flavours and spices you wouldn’t usually try in your kitchen and barbecuing your meat brings out a whole host of flavours.
With this healthy chicken recipe, you get the best barbecue flavours without any guilt as the dish only contains 320 calories.
Using fennel seeds, that are great for aiding indigestion and Cajun spice rub along with brown sugar, these chicken drumsticks are spicy and flavoursome when left to marinade overnight. But don’t worry if you’re pushed for time as just marinating them for an hour will also ensure this barbecue recipe is full of flavour too.
Chicken is a great source of protein and is full of essential minerals and can be enjoyed as part of a healthy and low calorie diet. So just because you’re entertaining doesn’t mean you need to serve up something unhealthy – give this barbecue recipe a go and you’re guests will never know the difference.
