Is Chicken The Perfect Food?

Is Chicken The Perfect Food? A news release issued by the National Chicken Council provides interesting insight into every bodybuilder's favorite lean meat. This by-the-numbers account shows that chicken's nutritional advantages aren't limited to supporting muscle size and strength gains. Here's the word on the bird:

A serving of skinless chicken breast serves up just 4 grams of fat, and 3.5 ounces of dark meat from the thighs or legs amounts to only 9 grams of fat. That same 3.5 ounce serving provides half the daily recommendation for protein with an impressive nutrient to calorie ratio. Those nutrients include: iron, zinc and vitamins B3, B6, B7 and B12.

True Strength Moment: At less than 200 calories, 4 ounces of chicken dishes out 36 grams of protein. It makes a great fit for salads, pasta and other dishes, and can be seasoned up as a tasty stand alone meal. How many different ways have you served it?
