Nutritional values

Lean chicken meat contains high-quality protein while the olive oil in this recipe provides beneficial unsaturated fatty acids. Additionally, the potatoes in this dish provide vitamins, potassium, and fiber.

Instead of chicken breast, you can also use fish like tuna, which will provide additional omega-3 fatty acids and iodine.
