Turkey And Chicken Breast
Protein Power: 24 g per 3 oz. (cooked) serving
There’s a reason chicken is a classic bodybuilding staple food. It’s packed in protein and low in fat—assuming you remove the skin, of course. Even better, it’s cousin, turkey, packs the same protein per pound, so if you’re looking to change up the taste, you can switch between these phenomenal cuts of poultry.
Need to Know: Like pork chops, chicken breast and turkey breast can benefit from a precook brining. If you’re concerned about antibiotic use in large-scale poultry farming, you can look for turkey breast labelled “antibiotic-free.”
