Chicken is a great source of protein. One 6 oz. serving of chicken contains 48 g of protein. Chicken is also rich in potassium, calcium and contains no carbohydrates. The nutritional makeup of chicken makes it a healthy, filling food option. You should avoid deep frying or stir frying chicken, as this imparts a ton of calories and grams of fat. To marinate the chicken beforehand, avoid fatty dressings and instead try just a little bit of lemon juice, salt and pepper. To prevent the chicken from sticking to the pan, it’s best to use a light coating of nonstick spray.
