All About Chicken Breasts

White-meat chicken breasts are a perfect low-calorie dinner option that tastes good and is good for you. As much as we praise the presence of baked chicken with no sauce, dressing, or anything else, eating it over and over again can get boring. Who wants to eat boring food? No one. Why not add a little spice to your meal by dressing up your basic chicken breast? Here are some super easy tips on making a repetitive meal into something extraordinary!

A Spicy Southern Twist

Before baking in the oven, add a Cajun rub to the top of chicken breasts. It adds flavor and a little bit of heat, which allows you to change up the boring everyday and still create a meal that won’t wreck your diet.

Add (some) Cheese

Take a trip to Italy and add some sauce and cheese to a plain baked chicken breast. Pour your favorite marinara sauce over a baked chicken breast and add some low-fat, part-skim mozzarella. All you need is to melt the cheese, pour a glass of red wine, and pretend that you are sitting in a café in Rome.

Asian-Inspired

Stir-fry is a perfect way to take ordinary ingredients and create a memorable meal, especially one that can be shared with friends. Sauté chicken and vegetables and add your favorite teriyaki sauce. Homemade take-out is easy, cheap, healthy, and delicious.
