This Healthy Recipe was emailed to me from Shay Owen from our 6pm or 7pm class

Memorial Day Weekend is coming up, so let’s get our BBQ pits out and throw some chicken on the grill!

Chicken is a fantastic source of lean protein. People who are meat eaters, but are looking for ways to reduce the amount of fat in their meals, can try eating more chicken. The leanest part of the chicken is the chicken breast, which has less than half the fat of a trimmed Choice grade T-bone steak. Chicken is also a very good source of the cancer-protective B vitamin, niacin. In addition chicken is an excellent source of the trace mineral, selenium. Selenium is of fundamental importance to human health. It is an essential component of several major metabolic pathways, including thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. Chicken is not only a very good source of niacin, but is also a good source of vitamin B6. Both of these B vitamins are important for energy production.
