    Interesting; I might check some BBQ sauce tomorrow - the less calorie ones
    This is the one I use so at most it's going to be maybe 50kcals on the sauce. Are you cutting or something? I would have been suprised if any sauce wouldn't fit your macros. Salt might be a little high though.

    A bit high on the calorie, no? =/

    :sexface:

    I'm trying to find something that can give it that taste of saltiness but without adding salt - if that makes sense =/

    The less salt you eat, the less you need to be able to taste saltiness... but what about mixes of spices that say 'for chicken' - they often taste a bit salty? or maybe just use chilli, or any of the above but sprinkle a little sea salt on it?

    Yup. I'm in my cutting phase. Also, I'm trying to watch out for my sodium intake for better healt.

    Hurm... would sea salt have lower the sodium than normal salt? - n00b here =/

    I did have a look on those mixed spices that say 'for chicken' but once I looked at the ingredients, I could infer that they are heavily processed with things I don't need for my diet =/

    Not unless it's "low" salt (which is grim anyway)

    I don't understand why you need suggestions. You have heard of herbs? They are all negligible nutritional content when used in seasoning amounts.

    Go to an Indian/East African grocers first before a supermarket and get what you can, it's much cheaper. Chili, basil, cayenne pepper, rosemary, onion powder, garlic, sage, thyme, oregano, cumin, parsley ect ect. Try different combinations or google 'chicken seasoning'

    I've never even ate chicken and I know that :confused:
    And I don't understand why you've been negged.

    Why the reduced salt diet? Are you diabetic/hypertensive/IHD or something?

    Rosemary and thyme, tarragon, tomato, bacon (grilled), honey, lemon. Unless you deep fry it, coat in lard or douse it in cream most things are fairly healthy, like if I want to be a curry I'll add a dollop of curry paste to some natural yoghurt.

    Just saw this sea salt in a bottle. Quite expensive. But it states: 0.5 gram of serving == 130 sodium. Is that good?

    Those season and shake bags by Coleman's are fairly healthy and they taste really good. They come in quite a few different flavours, e.g. cajun and paprika.

    Don't know if this is your cup of tea- I do a "healthy" KFC chicken:

    Spices needed: Paprika, oregano, garlic salt, onion powder, thyme, ground ginger, basil, celery salt, black pepper, mustard powder- 1 tbsp of everything
    1x slice of wmeal bread per chicken thigh (so if you want 2, 2 slices if you wanted 3, 3 slices)

    Mix the bread (grinded into crumbs) with the herbs

    Coat the chicken in egg then the bread/herb mixture on both sides. Bake for 45 minutes in 200 degree oven.

    Gonna try this out. Does it actually taste like KFC and do you leave the skin on the thighs?

    I assume this doesn't add much kcal on top of the standard thigh amount (~15g protein, 10g fat, 120kcal/100g), right?

    I think its nicer! I take the skin off usually but its a little nicer with the skin on because of the fat that comes out of the skin.

    Lovely with homemade chips- get a baking potato cut it into wedges and part boil them for 5 minutes, then spray olive oil/low fat cooking spray onto them and cook for 25 minutes- sometimes I put cajun spice on the chips too.

    Sick, I'll leave the skin on. I only usually take in like 60g of fat a day anyway and I'm a skinny little bastard.

    I won't be bothered to make home made chips as well, I'll probably just have it with microwave chips/broccoli, what I add to all my meals :P.
