6 recipes that jazz up boring chicken breast

Chicken breast is a great source of protein and low in fat. But using it as a core ingredient can be tricky. These 6 highly-rated recipes will please. 

Embarking on a new exercise regime? Chances are, you’re looking for a diet to match. Many of these include a lean and mean protein – one of them being chicken breast.

According to The Straits Times, 100g of chicken breast has 165kcal and 31g of protein. The high protein content is key for building and repairing muscles, keeping them fresh for intense workouts.

But the ingredient has a reputation for being too tough when cooked. Some recipes are too light on garnishes, making for an unsatisfying meal.

Here are six that we’re excited to try this weekend:
