Chicken is an extremely nutritious and versatile food that is rich in iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc; 3 oz. have approximately 24 grams of protein. If eaten skinless, it contains less than 2 grams of fat. Many varieties of chicken come frozen, pre-breaded, pre-seasoned and ready to cook, which allows you to prepare a healthy meal without much fuss. Add a garden salad and brown rice for a well-rounded lunch or dinner.
