Adding just a small amount of butter on top, and using grated parmesan for a garnish, keeps the fat and calories down.Don't skip the anchovy paste. It may seem like a weird ingredient, but it adds a lot of flavor. Also, don't be alarmed, the lemon juice will appear to cook the chicken a bit, turning it white in the marinating bag.

In Arizona we tend to forgo the green beer in favor of a lovely pale green margarita on St. Patrick's Day. You can make them easily at home without the high-sugar mix.
