Chicken breast is an excellent source of low-fat protein. Protein helps your body to maintain muscle mass and helps you to build muscles. Chicken is lean meat. It is a great choice several times per week. Chicken breast is also a very good source of selenium, phosphorus, niacin, and vitamin B6. Choose chicken breast often but also try chicken thighs.
Chicken thighs are sold with bone in and skin on, or boneless and skinless. They are dark meat, making them extra flavorful, and they contain a bit more fat, which ensures they bake up succulent and tasty. Thighs are more forgiving than chicken breasts, which can more easily be overcooked.
Just behind the breast is the inner fillet. Because this is a cut on the inside of the spine, the inner fillet is also called the “tenderloin” of the chicken. For the same reason this is the most tender part of the chicken. I use this one often. It takes less time to cook and the inner fillet is so tender.
