Chicken is an excellent ingredient when you're trying to eat healthy. Leaner, and far lower in things like saturated fats than pork or beef, both white meat and dark meat are excellent additions to a healthy diet. But if you're interested in weight loss, trying to eat lighter, or simply want to add more healthy recipes to your weekly roundup, you'll want healthy chicken recipes that taste great, and aren't too difficult to make. Here are our favorites!
