EATINGWELL: Heart-healthy tailgate idea: Chicken on a stick

EatingWell on

Here's a fun way to serve oven-fried chicken at a tailgate party or when watching a game at home: Put it on a stick. It's fabulous served with this homemade Vidalia onion and honey-mustard sauce, but it's also great with barbecue sauce or hot sauce. This is an easy recipe to double or triple depending on the size of your crowd.

Unlike the usual fried tailgate fare, however, this recipe is light and heart-healthy. Now that is something to cheer about.
