Chicken Nutrition Facts and Benefits

Along with being low in fat and carbs, chicken is a great source of protein, which is needed for the maintenance of muscles, cells, joints, and tissues. Research shows that protein helps reduce hunger, keeps weight off, and even lower blood pressure (1, 2). 

Additionally, eating chicken is associated with a reduced risk of developing obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. One study even found that white meat of poultry is moderately effective at protecting you against cancer (3). 

Chicken isn’t known for being high in vitamins and minerals, but it does contain some minerals and B vitamins. Unlike plant-based foods, research shows that the B vitamins in meat do not diminish while cooking.

A 100-gram serving of roasted chicken breast contains the following (4):

  • 165 calories
  • 3.5 grams of fat
  • 0 grams of carbs
  • 31 grams of protein
  • 1.04 mg of iron
  • 74 mg of sodium
  • B vitamins such as niacin, vitamin B6, and pantothenic acid

One of the biggest benefits of chicken is that the type of fat it contains is very healthy. Research shows that chicken contains high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids and only a third of the total fat is saturated fat.

When compared to other types of meat, chicken contains a high amount of polyunsaturated fats. These are mostly found in the skin and may include omega 6 and arachidonic acid.

Chicken that is fed vegetable feed is also a good source of alpha-linolenic acid or ALA, which is a precursor of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation and keep your brain and heart healthy (5, 6, 7).
