Nutritional values

The chicken is tender and lean, so it is always very popular with figure-conscious people. But also athletes appreciate the meat because of its high protein content. This protein makes our muscles grow and serves as a building material for body cells. In addition, the chicken scores with minerals such as nerve-strengthening magnesium and potassium for a healthy heart.

The chicken burst is the main component of a balanced meal. To complete it, you can prepare a vegetable-rice pan or a summer zoodle salad, for example. The fillets should not be fried too hot, otherwise too much liquid will leak out, resulting in a dry and tough piece of meat. Since chicken should never be eaten raw, the fillets are then placed in the oven where they are gently cooked at a constant temperature. In this way they obtain a tender, delicious meat.
