Chicken Breasts

Skinless chicken breasts are another excellent source of lean protein, and since they’re so convenient for quick, weeknight cooking, they’re the star player in many of my recipes. Incorporating high-quality proteins like chicken at meals is especially important if you’re looking to lose weight, manage diabetes, or declog the cholesterol in your arteries. Chicken breast is also rich in beneficial nutrients, including niacin, a B vitamin that may help prevent cataracts, and zinc, a mineral that boosts hair and skin vitality. If your chicken repertoire is getting stale, try some exciting new dishes from my Healthy Recipe Index, like Chicken Curry and Vegetables or Low-Carb Chicken Pizza.
