Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the healthiest ways to cook chicken?
Baking in the oven or boiling chicken is the healthiest ways to cook it, as it doesn’t increase the fats or sodium as much as frying or grilling would. But chicken, however it is cooked, is a pretty healthy choice of protein.
What part of chicken is best?
If you’re looking for the “healthiest” part of a chicken, then typically that is the breast. It is lower in calories than the darker meat like the legs or wings.
