Nutritional values

Chicken meat is a great source of B vitamins and trace elements. One portion of chicken contains half of the daily requirement of niacin and a third of zinc. Niacin is important for the build-up and breakdown of fat, protein and carbohydrates, zinc for strengthening the immune system, for skin and connective tissue and for insulin storage.

For other vitamins - especially fat-soluble and vitamin C - add cherry tomatoes and strips of carrots, kohlrabi, peppers and cucumber.
