French-Style Braised Chicken
Chicken meat is an excellent source of protein. They give the cells their structure and are important for cell growth and repair. Even poultry fat is useful: it contains many unsaturated fatty acids which have a positive effect on cholesterol levels.
The dish tastes excellent with ribbon noodles. Health-conscious people choose the wholemeal variety because it not only provides more carbohydrates than white noodles - the fuel for muscles, brain and nerves - but also additional fibre, vitamins and minerals.
