Healthy, because

Even smarter

Turkey meat is low in fat and rich in protein at the same time. This is a great combination especially for athletes and figure-conscious people. We need the protein to build and maintain our muscles and for messenger substances in the body.

Together with fried potatoes and a light remoulade, the chicken aspic is also a hearty main course. By the way, you can also replace the peppers with other vegetables such as zucchini.
