Anyone who has ever tried to eat healthy knows that chicken is a staple health food item. It's low in fat and high in protein, which is good for your diet.
The problem with chicken is that it's pretty flavorless by itself. And because it's so lean, it has a tendency to be dry if overcooked. Eat several dry, flavorless chicken breasts and you'll probably want to never eat chicken again! Fortunately there are ways to make chicken taste amazing.
Use some of these healthy recipes to bring chicken back into your diet and actually enjoy eating it!
