Collection of chicken recipes.
Chicken and its health benefits
Chicken is the most popular meat eaten all over the world. This is loved by every meat-eater. Chicken is used in so many forms. I may not be wrong in saying every cuisine in the world definitely has recipes with them. Bake, cook, grill, barbeque, fry, boil - the options are endless.
Chicken is affordable and nutritious and packs in a wide range of nutrients for very few calories. Chicken is a very good source of complete protein containing all essential and non-essential amino acids and at the same time easy to digest. Good quality chicken e.g. organically raised is also a good source of vitamins (especially B vitamins), minerals, and omega-3.
