Healthy Recipes: Chicken Breast, Five Variations

Clean Eating Chicken Breast Recipes from Simply Fit & Clean. Clean Eating Chicken Breast Recipes | Simply Fit & clean

Whether chicken breast itself is considered a “healthy food” depends on who you ask.  Someone trying to build muscles? Yes.  A vegan?  No.  Chicken breasts are a popular food for the fitness minded because they have a few desirable features: low calorie (170/3 oz serving,) high protein (25g/3 oz,) and 0 carbohydrates.  As with any food, healthy prep is just as essentially as healthy ingredients.  Breading a chicken breast and dousing it in gravy minimizes the benefits.
