Chicken breast is a great source of protein that is low in carbohydrates and, without the skin on, has little-to-no fat. It is also incredibly versatile in the fact that there are chicken breast recipes for everything from breakfast to supper. That said, each recipe will be different as far as calories go. Where one chicken breast recipe might have next to no calories, another might have more than half of your daily allowance. But is it worth it? Completely. Chicken is delicious! Let's take a look at some super easy and tasteful options.


1. Spicy Herb-Rubbed Grilled Chicken

Adding spices to chicken breast is an excellent way to give it a bit of kick. Although you can pick from a huge selection of chicken rubs at your local grocery store, it's much healthier to make it yourself. Combine 1 teaspoon of onion powder, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper. This simple rub can marinate not only chicken but steak and fish too. Mix the ingredients in a bowl and then sprinkle it over your chicken breast. Coat the chicken in cooking spray and put it in the grill or 6 minutes on each side.
