My Dad hs ben in the hospital, he is home now but on a restricted diet. (he eats way to much junk!)
I think each week I am going to make a couple differnt batchews of maerinated bonless sknless chiken breat & thighs.
  bron them in a skillit & keep in fridge for my folks to have over salad for lunch. ( they own  a bunies & have a grilin thew back, a toaster oven & a microwave there  so they can heat it up it they want)

I have to keep merinades low fat, low sugar & trig to keep all nautral.

Any suggestion??

This week I made 2 diff batches one with th jce for madarine oranges with some chopped giner.
 the second with a little olive oil, pepper, oragan & lots ofparsely.

Italian dressing (Kraft Free) or beer (cooking dissipates the alcohol...)

salsa! I dump a jar of salsa over chicken breasts and let them sit all night in the fridge. Grill and serve with pico de gallo and avocado. yummy! You can also throw some chicken in a freezer bag and pour the salsa in and freeze the whole thing. That way the next time you want chicken, it's a no brainer, pull it out, thaw, and it's already marinated.

Also good is some olive oil (you can use very little and it'll still work) with crushed garlic, herbs of your choice, a little salt and some fresh ground pepper.

I love salsa too!  I put salsa and chicken together in the slow cooker until the chicken is falling apart.  Makes great burrito and taco stuffins.

Mustard! Spicy brown, dijon, whatever. Most have no sugar or fat and you can use it instead of mayo for chicken salad.

Thank you for the ideas so far ...

I never thought to freze the meat with the merinade on it. That is really smart!

I made some chicken breast yesterday with salsa, It was Pinapple_Peach Salsa from Aldi. Man was that good!! I Made  big green salads with lettuce, baby spinach, chopped green & red peppers & cooked & cooled frozen corn.  served the chicken cooked in salsa ove rthe top. very very tasty!!

I tihnk I want to try doing something similar with homemade cranberrie sauce too ... i tihnk it would be good with chicken or turkey breat.
After Thanksgivng turkey breats halfs are always very inexpensive around here. I will debone & skin them & freeze them with some marinate in heavy duty zip bags.

I think a brown mustard & a little oil & pepper would be good on some lean steak too... 

Lots of good ideas now. Thank you!!

Peach brandy and mango salsa, mmmm good
Vidalia Onion dressing and lemon juice (don't know if you have that, we get it up here in Alaska and its so good)
Garlic minced, lemonjuice, pepper and salt with some olive oil
experiment, that's what I do... you can make a cajun marinade, mexican, italian, chinese, etc... think of ethnic flavors, regional flavors, what is distinctive about their foods, common spices? mix it up and try it out.  Hard to go wrong really...

good luck

we also really like the salsa chicken in the crockpot at our house.  Sometimes we also use spicy bloodymary mix.  Another idea is the flavored low fat vinegrettes.  You can make your own or buy a premade bottle.  Raspberry walnut is my fav.
