Health Benefits of Chicken

We're sure you've heard it before. Chicken is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. But why is that? What is it about this meat that makes it so popular among athletes and those trying to manage their weight?

For starters, chicken is very high in protein and low in fat. This contrasts it against something like beef, which is high in protein but also high in fat. It's chicken's high protein and low fat content that make it such a great option for those trying to lose fat and build muscle.

Chicken also has a number of important nutrients in it. In particular, chicken contains a lot of niacin, selenium, phosphorous, and vitamin B6. There are also a number of other nutrients in chicken, in smaller quantities. The nutrients that chicken contains are essential for energy production, brain health, and DNA synthesis.

With benefits like these, it's no wonder that chicken is seen as such a superfood. By feeding this chicken to your family, you'll be helping to provide them with a balanced, healthy diet. Healthy food doesn't have to be boring, and this recipe is great evidence for that!
