Memorial Day is just around the corner which unofficially marks the beginning of Summer. We set aside this time to commemorate the bravery of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who gave their lives in pursuit of our freedom. Words cannot express how thankful we are for your sacrifice! Even though this is a sobering day for some, it is also a time for many to bond with the friends and family still among us. There will be BBQ, there will be fresh fruit, there will be plenty of parks filled with people and picnic baskets. So, in honor of the this special day, we have put together a couple of recipes we thought you may like to try. These are fun, simple, and most important HEALTHY! Don’t forget to sprinkle!
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast halves or tenders
1/2 c. low-sugar bbq sauce
1 can chicken broth
Pour just enough chicken broth in a baking dish to lightly cover the bottom. Add single layer of chicken, tenders work really well because two tenders is a serving size. Lightly brush the chicken with bbq sauce, reserve the rest. Pour in the rest of the chicken broth. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 60 minutes. The broth will keep the chicken tender. Use the rest of the bbq sauce to top the chicken when you serve it. Makes 4 servings
