  9. A1. Protein is key to the human diet, especially for younger people, because the body uses it to create new cells and maintain or repair existing cells. The body also uses protein to produce enzymes, which help catalyze processes such as digestion, metabolism and storage of fat.
    Chicken consists of high-quality protein (that is, protein that contains the eight essential amino acids) and a relatively low amount of fat. In addition, fat in chicken is mostly of the unsaturated type, which protects against heart disease. Thus, chicken is often recommended by physicians and nutrition counselors as an alternative to red meat (beef and pork), which typically has more fat and more saturated fat. Chicken breast without the skin has less fat than sirloin steak, pot roast, 80 or 90 percent lean hamburger, pork chops, or ham.

  14. A1. We all keep on hearing a lot about protein since it plays an important part in combating the ever-expanding obesity epidemic. We need to get the right amount of high-quality protein, and chicken fills the bill. Chicken consists of high-quality protein (that is, protein that contains the eight essential amino acids) and a relatively low amount of fat. In addition, fat in chicken is mostly of the unsaturated type, which protects against heart disease.
    Chicken is also a good source of niacin (vitamin B3), which aids in metabolism; vitamin B6, important to immune system and blood sugar level maintenance; biotin (vitamin B7), which helps cell growth; and vitamin B12, which is involved in nerve cell and red blood cell maintenance.
    Chicken also contains iron (oxygen transport and cell growth) and zinc (immune system functioning and DNA synthesis).

    A2. Chicken tikka masala has 48 different ways of curry preparation. These delicious 48 recipes from around the world breathe new life into the not-so-hallowed bird.

    A3. Jardaloo Ma Murghi or Khubani Murg, chicken with apricots, is a delicious Parsee dish’ a kind of sweet And spicy flavor which I truly love. This dish is the true fusion of Persia and Hindustan.

    A4. Kosha murgir mangsho. It is a dry type Chicken Curry cooked in Mustard Oil. If you like mustard fragrance, this recipe is calling your name.

    A5. I love Chicken Tikka Masala. It’s so fragrant, spicy and delicious. The chicken tikka masala recipes with common household ingredients add a new zest to chicken.

    My mom used to tease me that I eat so much chicken, one day I will grow like a bulky chicken. Chicken is my favorite food, the one I thought I couldn’t live without. I remember the one question I asked my husband in my first meeting – Do you eat Chicken? ;p ;p and guess what he said ‘yes’ to chicken and I said ‘Yes’ to him  
