chicken

is there a big diffence in fat from white to dark meat?

    Really not that much difference, if the portion sizes are reasonable. I tend to use white meat for dishes that will cook relatively quickly (e.g., sauteed breasts after pounding them to a consistent thickness), and dark meat for slow cooked recipes, because the white meat dries out.

    I refer either depending on what's cooking....the dark meat does have slightly more fat, but removing the skin naturally decreases fat content.

A also use a combination or the whole chicken in soups but when I do, I make the stock the day before and chill it over night...the next day simply lift of the layer of fat on the surface and your soup/ stock will be nearly fat-free....you can figure tossing away 100 calories for each tablespoon of fat you skim from the pot!

    I was going to say the same thing as katrinakraut. I prefer white meat personally. But also don't forget that you should take the skin off. Good question!! do a search on the main page about it. I'm sure there's an article about it.

    White meat is definitely leaner but dark meat tends to be moister. Bottom line is portion size. Which do you prefer?

    I would go with both, although I'm sure you prefer the elliptical & free weights..

    Chicken vegetable using chicken broth, onions, carrots, potatoes, celery, peas, corn, cabbage, chicken, and sometimes put in thin noodles or small noodles. With some crusty bread, makes a yummy meal.

    I do not like to chew many vegetables, so I make a huge bowl of chicken broth and add as many vegetables as I can get (cabbage, celery, tomatoes, suchinni, chayote squash, carrots, a lot of spinach, etc.) and boilt it until all aver quite cooked. Some cilantro and other seasonings and then smash everything and make a delicious cream of vegetables (no heavy cream nor milk added, just the seasoning) and separate it on12 ouncess portions. I freeze them and eat one a day. I make sometimes up to 30 portions in just one time and it lasts for more than a month. That has helped me a lot with my vegetable portions and my work is done once in a while. It sure simplifies my life.
