LA Muscle Nutrition: Chicken Breast
No lean protein has a more respected reputation than the chicken breast. Specifically boneless, skinless chicken breasts have consistently been at the top of the list of lean proteins to eat for fat loss.

In addition to being a fat burning powerhouse, chicken breasts provide a wealth of health benefits to help you maintain good health. You should notice that ½ chicken breast has just 142 calories and just 3 grams of fat.

Chicken breasts nutrition facts also tell us that there are no carbs, sugar or fiber but there are 27 grams of protein in just a half breast! Chicken breast nutrition facts also tell us that you can get many essential vitamins including E, B6 and B12.

You can also get vitamins essential to healthy body functions, including riboflavin, niacin, thiamin and pantothenic acid. Minerals, which provide many of the health benefits of chicken breasts, are found in healthy numbers in just one serving. For example, phosphorus and selenium make up more than 20% of your recommended daily value.

There are also small, but helpful amounts of calcium, iron, potassium and zinc found in chicken breasts. You’ll also be happy to know that ½ chicken breast also gives you significant amounts ofomega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for a healthy body.

Best Eaten: Chicken breasts are versatile and very easy to cook. Just be sure not to overcook it, as many people stay away from chicken breasts because they deem it “too dry”. Cook with bell peppers and onions for lean fajitas. Add to mixed vegetables and flavor with curry or soy sauce & ginger for an international meal. Slice a chicken breast and place it over a salad for a healthy protein infusion.
