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.
