Save

Broil chicken for a low-fat, low-calorie dish. Add zest with seasonings or liquids. Baste broiling chicken with a tangy barbecue sauce for a quick, easy-to-prepare meal. If you aren't pressed for time, marinate your chicken pieces for half an hour before broiling them. Brine the poultry overnight for a moist, flavorful chicken dish. Serve your broiled chicken with a side salad, brown rice, broccoli, corn or a sweet potato for a tasty meal.
