Ground Chicken is so versatile in the kitchen. From lasagna to burgers to chili, ground chicken works wonders in any recipe. Offering a lean, protein-packed alternative to the more commonly used ground beef or pork, it is lighter in taste, fat, and calories, and holds up in even the heartiest of recipes.
Ground Chicken usually has less fat than ground beef. It is a good source of protein and easy to prepare. A serving of ground chicken is about three ounces and is lower in cholesterol than regular ground beef.
Because Ground Chicken is so lean, there are a few things to keep in mind before you begin cooking. First, less fat means less moisture. To avoid it from getting dense or dry, it is important to add some moisture to your mixture. Ground chicken also needs to be cooked at a lower temperature than ground beef or pork due to its lower fat content. This will ensure that the chicken does not dry out too quickly. Finally, be sure to season well. Ground chicken’s lighter taste means it has less flavor on its own.
