Grilled chicken is great. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s nutritious and it’s versatile. … Still, not all of the fat in chicken skin is good fat, and it does add calories, so if you’re trying to go for a super-lean meal, skinless chicken is better. Grill some vegetables alongside your chicken for a very healthy meal.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken on the grill for 7-8 minutes. Cover the grill lip over and cook an additional 7-8 minutes or until no pink remains and chicken reaches 165°F. Rest 3-5 minutes before slicing.

Cover the grill and let the chicken cook for 5-7 minutes, then use tongs to flip the breasts over. Grill for 5-7 minutes longer. For best results, pull out your thermometer. A fully cooked chicken breast will reach a temperature of 165°.

Ingredients

Blueberry Barbecue Grilled Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 1/2 lbs chicken whole, cut up
  • 1 medium sweet yellow onion finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic fresh, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups blueberries fresh
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce

Star-Spangled Cake

  • 1 lb pound cake thawed
  • 8 oz whipped topping thawed
  • 2 cups water divided
  • 1 3-oz package gelatin mix blueberry
  • 1 3-oz package strawberry gelatin mix
  • 1 cup strawberries fresh
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh

Instructions

Blueberry Barbecue Grilled Chicken

  • Combine chili powder, brown sugar, seasoning, salt, and red pepper; stir to blend, then divide in half. Place chicken in a large bowl; toss with one-half of the spice mixture, rubbing the mixture into chicken pieces until coated. Chill 1 hour (or overnight).
  • Chop onion and garlic. Preheat medium saucepan on medium 1–2 minutes. Place oil in the pan, then add onions and garlic; cook 4–5 minutes or until vegetables are browned. Preheat grill on medium.
  • Stir blueberries and remaining-half spice mixture into vegetables; cook 3–4 minutes or until berries begin to break down. Pour in barbecue sauce and reduce heat to low; simmer 6–8 minutes, stirring often, or until sauce is thick and glossy. Cover and remove the pan from heat.
  • Place chicken on grill; cook 18–20 minutes, turning often, or until well browned and chicken is 165°F. Brush chicken with blueberry barbecue sauce during the last minute of grill time. Serve with remaining sauce on the side.

Prep for Star-Spangled Cake

  • Thaw cake and whipped topping.

Star-Spangled Cake

  • Pour 1 cup water each into two microwave-safe bowls; microwave each bowl individually on HIGH until boiling. Stir berry gelatin into one bowl and strawberry gelatin into the second bowl until dissolved. Let stand 10 minutes to cool.
  • Slice cake (about 18 slices) and strawberries. Dip 9 cake slices into berry gelatin mixture, then layer into a 9-inch baking dish; pour any remaining berry gelatin mixture over cake. Sprinkle 1/2 cup blueberries over the cake, then spread 4 oz whipped topping evenly over cake and blueberries.
  • Dip the remaining 9 cake slices into strawberry gelatin mixture, then layer over whipped topping; pour any remaining strawberry gelatin mixture over cake. Spread remaining 4 oz whipped topping evenly over cake.
  • Decorate the top of the cake with the remaining 1/2 cup blueberries and strawberries. Cover and chill 1 hour (or overnight). Serve. (Makes 9 servings.)

Notes

Grilled Chicken: Check the temperature of thighs and legs first; breasts may require up to 15 minutes more cook time.
Cake: For a larger cake, double the recipe and assemble in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Decorate the top of the cake to look like an American flag if desired.
Hot Bod Advice
