Which part of the chicken is better for you?

Choose Chicken Breasts Over Dark Meat

White meats, such as chicken breasts, are lower in fat, calories and higher in protein than dark chicken meat. A roasted chicken breast has approximately 165 calories, 4 grams of fat and 31 grams of protein – compared to a chicken thigh which has 210 calories, 5 grams of fat and 25 grams of protein. If you are looking to lose weight and lower your cholesterol, you should consider eating only white meat.
If you are truly wanting to eat healthy, you should switch to organic or free range chicken. These chickens are raised without any growth enhancements on farms that do not use any fertilizers, pesticides or bioengineering methods.
