Poultry 1. These marinades are easy to make and turn ordinary poultry into a gourmet meal - -
practically no work on your part! Be sure to discard the marinade afterward, or else bring it to a full boil before using it as a
sauce. Each recipe is great for marinating 1 pound of skinless, boneless poultry, whether you broil or grill it.

apple juice, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Makes about ¾ cup or 12 tablespoons (per tablespoon -
25.9 calories/0.1 fat grams/0.3 fiber grams).

CURRYING FAVOR. Combine 1 cup apple juice, ¼ cup cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon curry powder, 1 teaspoon minced garlic and ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes. Makes about 1 ¼ cup or 20 tablespoons (per tablespoon - 6.9 calories/0 fat grams/0 fiber grams).

GREAT GRILLING. Combine ½ cup balsamic vinegar, ½ cup orange juice, ¼ cup chopped
onions, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro, ½ teaspoon olive oil, and 1/8 teaspoon crushed red
pepper flakes. Makes about 1 ¼ cup or 20 tablespoons (per tablespoon - 8.7 calories/0.1 fat grams/0.1

MIGHTY MINTY. Bring ¼ cup grape jelly and ¼ cup cider vinegar to a boil; add ¼ cup
chopped fresh mint and 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce. Let cool before using. Makes about ¾ cup or 12 tablespoons (per tablespoon - 20.3 calories/0 fat grams/0.2 fiber grams).

PUCKER UP. Combine ½ cup dry sherry or defatted chicken stock, 2 tablespoons lemon

sauce, 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger and 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Makes about ¾ cup or 12 tablespoons (per tablespoon 9.5 calories/0 fat/0.1 fiber).

MEATS1. Marinades are the most effective way to flavor and moisten extra-lean cuts of meat which can often be dry
due to lack of fat. Use about 1 pound of lean beef or pork with any of the following
marinades. For the best results, marinate the meat in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. To keep meats moist during cooking, baste frequently with the marinade.

CHINESE CHEER. Combine 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce, 1

Now I do count points for the marinade if I'm eating as a dip but if I am just using it as a marinade to tenderize and flavor the meat I don't count any points for it.
