Sliced Chicken Breast

Sliced chicken breast is a great snack to include in your dietary regimen. Marinate a few pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts, broil or BBQ them and slice them up. You can add some spices to the chicken breasts and keep a plate of them in the fridge for a quick snack. Cold sliced chicken breast tastes amazing and is high in protein, low in fat and has virtually no carbs.

Always choose all natural boneless, skinless chicken breast versus prepackaged luncheon meats which are processed and contain added sugar and a carcinogenic precursor ingredient known as sodium nitrite (sodium nitrate is closely related). Sodium nitrite is a dangerous, cancer-causing ingredient that has no place in the human food supply.

Chicken and Food Safety

  • Always wash your hands with hot soapy water after handling chicken and other raw meats, as well as cutting boards, the countertop, and knives.

  • Never place cooked chicken on the platter that held the raw meat. Keep raw meats separate from other foods.

  • Store raw chicken in the coldest part of the fridge for no more than two days, and make sure you don't put it on top of other foods that won't be cooked before eating. Raw chicken juices dripping onto lettuce or fresh fruits is a real no-no.

  • Cook chicken thoroughly and don't let it sit out at room temperature for more than two hours.
