Why Chicken is So Good For You

Grilled Chicken FDP Credit markusoChicken, in all its forms, can be a healthy dietary choice or a fat-laden, unhealthy option. The Food Pyramid Guide designed and offered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, includes chicken as one of the sources of protein you can include in a heart-healthy diet.

Prepare skinless chicken by grilling, baking, boiling or broiling and use herbs as seasoning. Steer clear of fried chicken because it is high in fat. One 3 oz. serving of chicken has magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, niacin and vitamins A and B12. That same 3 oz. serving of chicken contributes to about 1/4 of the Recommended Daily Value for cholesterol. Learn more about chicken by reading our Bright Hub guides.
