Summertime is perfect time to break out the grill and enjoy a great meal with family and friends. With all the parties and events that people throw, though, it can be easy to overeat since a lot of the food includes hot dogs, hamburgers, and other dishes that can pile on the calories.

Since chicken is one of the easiest, and quickest, meats to prepare and is one of the most filling lean proteins, it makes sense to utilize in some summer recipes. So, for the next backyard or kitchen BBQ you throw, we’ve rounded up 7 tasty and healthy BBQ chicken recipes you can try out to have some fun while still keeping the calories down.
