Nutritional values

Poultry protein is similar in structure to human protein, so it is easy for our bodies to absorb it. In addition, chicken meat supplies a lot of zinc. The trace element strengthens the body's defences and supports wound healing; we need a lot of it when we are under stress and sweating a lot.

A fresh, colourful salad complements the oven chicken perfectly. A salad contains many bioactive plant substances as well as vitamins and minerals that are not found in meat.
