Chicken

Chicken is a great source of protein, and is also low calorie! An average chicken breast has around 54 grams of protein, and 100 grams of chicken has about 31 grams of protein, so you can get a lot of your protein intake from one chicken meal! Plain chicken breast can be tasteless and boring, so why not try one of the below recipes?
