When you're picnicking in an area where there's no grill on site, try picking up a roast chicken from your local grocery store to serve as a main dish. It's just as convenient as picking up a bucket of fried chicken, but much healthier: A 3-ounce (85-gram) serving of roast chicken (with the skin removed) comes in at just 120 calories. Roast chicken meat also pulls off the bone very easily, allowing you to serve portions with a fresh, fruity side, such as mango salsa. Or, if your picnic is more of a walking, talking affair, stuff the meat in a whole wheat pita for better portability.
