Keep calories down by cooking chicken on a rotisserie or grill that allows any residual fat to drip away from the meat. Steaming or boiling the chicken requires no added fats during the cooking process, so these cooking methods also keep calories at bay.

For a low-calorie meal, add grilled boneless skinless chicken to a warm spinach salad, create kebabs out of cut-up chicken marinated in olive oil, oregano, lemon juice and garlic or make a quick chicken-and-vegetable stir fry dish.
