Is Chicken Healthy?

Chicken is a popular white lean meat. One serving of chicken breast (3oz or 85g) contains 24g of protein and 3g of fat. Chicken thighs and legs are often a little more caloric and have more fat. Low in calories and rich in protein, chicken is a healthy source of animal protein. It is also rich in niacin (vitamin B3), selenium, and vitamins B6 and B12. These nutrients help break down macronutrients and to turn them into energy, form DNA, and promote a healthy nervous system, amongst other things.

Can I Use Other Chicken Cuts?

Absolutely! We love using chicken tights for this recipe, but if you want a leaner alternative, use chicken breasts. You can even replace the chicken by using turkey!
