Everyone is trying to incorporate more protein without adding too much fat to their diets, but even the biggest chicken-lover sometimes wants an alternative.
Here are some ways to think outside the chicken box this summer.
Cornish game hens are a fun alternative to chicken, especially for parties, since everyone gets their own personal bird.
