Chicken

 Chicken is a healthy addition to a well-balanced diet because it is lower in fat and calories than other types of meat and contains nutrients that are important for overall health. The breast of a chicken is most often used in low-fat and low-calorie recipes, but thighs make a good alternative. Whichever cut you choose, removing the skin will reduce the amount of fat in your meal.

Fat and Calories

 

If you are trying to keep your fat intake down, chicken breast is the better choice because it contains less than the thigh. One cup of cooked chicken breast contains 5 g of fat compared to the 15 g in the chicken thigh. A diet that limits fat is one that reduces your risk of developing heart disease. In addition, a lower fat content results in less calories; 231 for chicken breast versus 293 for the thigh. Keeping your calorie intake moderate allows you to lose weight or maintain your current number.

Protein

Including good sources of protein in your daily diet is important for your skin, nails, hair, muscles and cells. Ten percent to thirty-five percent of your calorie intake should consist of protein, which equates to 50 g to 175 g per day for a 2,000-calorie diet. One cup of roasted chicken breast contains about 43 g of protein while the same amount of roasted chicken thigh has 36 g, making both a good option for helping you reach these goals.
