Check your cookbooks, and you’ll find more recipes for chicken than for almost any other food. Its versatility is one reason the world has depended on it for about 3500 years.
Before 1400 B.C., the Chinese raised chickens for meat and eggs. While many historians thought chickens were first brought to the Americas by explorers and pilgrims, a recent discovery shows that chickens lived in Chile from the 1300s. They were brought there by the Polynesians. In our time, chicken is a highly recommended addition to our diets. It’s low in fat, particularly without the skin and its fat is lower in cholesterol than other meat fats.
Chicken is a good source of the B vitamins and vitamin D, plus other important minerals and it contains all nine essential amino acids. Try this easy and fast recipe recommended by Better Homes and Gardens.
