grocery store chicken
Ok so when you go to the grocery store (heb, kroger, randall's etc.) they have those pre cooked chickens in the little plastic containers. They taste so good but I'm wondering the health value per se. has about 11g fat 3 of them sat no trans. In the ingredients it has dextrose yet no carbs and some phosphate something or other in it. So are these good or a no go?

11g of Fat in Chicken.... Is this in the deli section.. ? I shop at Kroger too and I don't know what you're talking about. I get the fresh breasts in the styrofoam trays .

Well of course I take of the skin lol but I'm pretty sure most of the fat sinks off into the chicken itself. If you haven't had it before it's pretty damn good

Well I do notice that a lot of roast chick has crap put in it. The only roast chickens I get are from Whole Foods and even then you have to be careful. One time I saw on the ingredient list "corn syrup solids" "dextrose" and "citric acid". Really? Come on there is no reason for that on chicken. I get the ones that have the least amount of ingredients. I like to eat the skin though for calories and I always cover the chicken in butter.

Fat is a good thing... I have no complaints, the more calories on my chicken, the better..
