For the longest time, chicken has always been our “go to” food. We love chicken!! (probably why me being a Chicken Farmer Ambassador is so easy!)
Now there is really great news about chicken!
Chicken is a SuperFood!
Recently, studies have shown that chicken is a SuperFood. If prepared with the skin on, it is even healthier for you!
[You] can cook your chicken with the skin on, retaining all the moisture and flavour you love, and then remove it prior to serving to achieve essentially the same health benefit as a skinless cut.
That’s right, a breast of chicken cooked with skin-on and then removed actually has less fat and calories than a skinless breast. How is this possible? When the chicken is cooking, the fat in the breast flows out of the meat and becomes trapped in the skin. The skin of the chicken becomes saturated with fat and retains it once it is removed.
