A baked chicken recipe that’s sure to satisfy your cravings
It’s no secret that a chicken salad is a must-try.
Its crunchy, creamy, and slightly sweet texture is just perfect for a quick lunch or dinner, especially if you have kids.
But what about the other side of the food-loving spectrum?
It seems like chicken is a staple in most families’ pantries.
How about a baked chicken sandwich?
Well, according to a new study, baked chicken sandwiches can be just as delicious, and have a much lower fat content than traditional chicken.
The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the University at Buffalo, found that while most people like to eat chicken, they’re often less willing to fork out the cash for the meal.
“There’s no doubt that a baked or grilled chicken sandwich is an economical, convenient way to get some chicken into the house and to be able to serve it for dinner, and also to be a quick and convenient way for people to get a bite,” said lead researcher J.D. Anderson, an associate professor of food science and human nutrition.
The study found that those who prefer baked chicken have a similar eating pattern to that of those who don’t, as they typically enjoy the flavor of the chicken, but they tend to like the nutritional benefits of the recipe more than the calories.
The researchers also found that people who like to use a baked-chicken sandwich also tend to be more satisfied with the taste of the sandwich, compared to people who don`t.
To put it simply, the study found people who have a baked version of chicken tend to prefer the taste, while people who prefer a grilled version are more likely to like its nutritional benefits.
“In terms of calories, the average grilled chicken will be about 250 calories and about 60 grams of fat,” Anderson said.
“Thats a very small amount compared to the amount of calories you can get out of a chicken sandwich.”
For those who have never had chicken, the most important thing is to choose a chicken that is free of grease, oil, and other chemicals, he said.
He said the research could be used to inform people who want to experiment with their own chicken recipe.
“If you really want to get really creative, you could try to make your own recipe using a mixture of different kinds of ingredients and try to get it really different than what is commercially available,” he said, “and you could even use different flavors and textures and different cooking methods.”
Anderson said there are a number of things you can do to make the chicken healthier, including substituting one type of chicken for another.
The most important part is to eat it well-cooked, which means that the chicken is cooked and cooked evenly, not all at once.
The more you eat, the better your health will be.
The research was published in the journal PLOS ONE.
