How healthy is a hibachi chicken dinner entree?

We love your question because it provides an opportunity to explain a restaurant truism, which is that there isn’t really much that is “typical” when it comes to recipes in restaurants. That is, one restaurant may prepare its chicken dinner with a high-fat sauce and baste it in olive oil; and another with a fruit-based, low-fat sauce. One hibachi chicken dinner might include a leg, breast and wing with the skin on; and another includes only a skinless breast. And what sides are included, made with what precise recipes? So to post the calorie (or full nutrition information) requires that we have the complete recipe for a menu item, and only then do Healthy Dining’s registered dietitians calculate the nutrient levels. This holds true for all categories of menu items and recipes, from lasagnas to burgers to soups to sandwiches to desserts, etc. The good news is that hibachi chicken would generally be a great Healthy Dining choice, especially when paired with some veggies and whole grains for sides.
