Healthy Chicken Recipes

Chicken is the most popular meat in America. To help you solve “what’s for dinner?” dilemma, I have compiled most popular easy healthy chicken recipes here on ifoodreal.com. Tacos, skillets, Instant Pot and baked chicken recipes that are fairly quick and good for you.

No dry chicken here. Only juicy, crispy and tender healthy chicken recipes.

Health Benefits of Chicken

  • Chicken is a source of lean protein, vitamins B3 and B6, and selenium. If you live a healthy lifestyle, it doesn’t mean you have to eat only chicken breast.
  • It does matter how you cook your chicken. Baking, grilling and sauteing chicken with a bit of oil are the healthiest options. That’s when ceramic non-stick pans are handy.:)
  • Consuming chicken may help you reduce consumption of red meat thus lower the risk of colorectal cancer. And reduce consumed bad cholesterol for same reasons.
  • Eating more lean protein like poultry may help with weight loss.
  • Chicken noodle soup may relieve symptoms of common cold.

All this info from a reliable source and common sense. Now if you are vegan you probably hate me.:) But hey, I’m not vegan and love my chicken and vegetables. Moderation is key.

There is nothing better than a bowl of soup or stew on a rainy or snowy day. Plus soup and stew are very budget friendly as anything goes.
