To help make meal time easier for you, Jewel-Osco's Chef's Kitchen offers a variety of ready-to-go food items that require minimal preparation. These items include a variety of cooked chicken products. Nutrition information for each of these chicken products varies. Knowing the nutrition facts can help you determine which Jewel-Osco ready-to-go chicken works for your diet.

Skinless Chicken Breast

When concerned about fat and calories, the skinless chicken breast from Jewel-Osco Chef's Kitchen makes the healthiest choice. A 4 oz. serving contains 120 calories, 1 g of total fat, 0 g of saturated fat, 75 mg of cholesterol, 85 mg of sodium, 0 g of carbohydrates and 26 g of protein. As a low-energy dense food, the skinless chicken helps you feel full on fewer calories, which can aid in weight management.

Whole Chicken

The whole chicken at Jewel-Osco makes a good choice for the family that likes both white and dark meat, although the whole chicken is higher in fat and calories than the skinless chicken. A 4 oz. serving contains 250 calories, 19 g of total fat, 6 g of saturated fat, 65 mg of cholesterol, 70 mg of sodium, 0 g of carbohydrates and 19 g of protein. One serving meets 30 percent of your daily value for saturated fat. High intakes of saturated fat increase your risk of heart disease. You may be able to save fat and calories by discarding the skin of the whole chicken and just eating the meat.
