This chicken recipe calls for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. But if you are on a budget, you can certainly use bone-in chicken. If it still has the skin you can cut much of it off yourself if trying to save calories or leave some on for a little extra flavor and crispy texture. Regardless of which type of chicken breast you use, it delivers lots of high-quality protein. Animal protein, like chicken, is called high quality because it has all the amino acids that humans need to make protein in their bodies. Protein in the diet is essential for humans. We need it to build and repair our body tissues such as muscles and organs and it is also used by our immune system. Another source of high-quality protein in this recipe is Greek yogurt. All yogurt has some protein, but Greek yogurt has the most!
Chicken also has lots of B vitamins and the mineral zinc. Like protein, zinc is also very important for your immune system. B vitamins have many functions in the body. Too many to list! However, one of the main functions of B vitamins in the body is to help your body’s cells produce energy to do their work of keeping you alive, healthy and active! This is a healthy recipe, especially if you choose the Greek yogurt for the dressing instead of the mayonnaise.
