    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?

    Ok.. For a second I was thinking of the plastic containers with fried/baked chicken in them by the check out lines.

    I didn't realize just how fatty the skin was. Geez

    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.

    Ditto. I get the trays of fresh chicken breast with red and blue label. Trim excess fat throw on a cookie sheet and cover with favorite seasoning. Bake at 375 for 20-25 min depending on thickness.

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