There are many ways to cook chicken, and each person seems to have his or her favorite. Some people prefer to grill it, while others opt to fry it. However, if you eat chicken regularly, you should strongly consider broiling it as often as you can. It will lead to healthier chicken and be better for you. Let’s take a look at the benefits of broiling chicken.

It will cut down on calories.

When you broil a chicken, you expose it directly to heat rather than cooking it in any kind of oil. This in and of itself will make it healthier since it will cut down on the total amount of calories you take in. Just one tablespoon can add about 100 calories to a meal, so you should avoid oil whenever possible. If you want to make your chicken more flavorful, try spices or herbs instead.

It will eliminate most fat.

Broiling chickens and meats as opposed to cooking them in oil will reduce the fat content in them. The fat in them will melt away when they are exposed to heat and drip down into the broiler pan in your oven. It will allow you to throw the fat out as opposed to putting it into your body. The more fat you can keep out of your diet, the better, and broiling will help in that regard.

It will cook your food faster.

Some people mistakenly believe broiling chicken will take too long. However, the truth is that when you use high heat to cook chicken, it won’t take long at all for it to finish. Broiling will brown the outside of your chicken while leaving everything inside nice and tender. You may need to experiment a bit with broiling if you’ve never done it before, but once you get the hang of it, you will love eating broiled chicken.

Undoubtedly, there are plenty of benefits that come along with broiling chicken. There are also benefits that come along with eating pasture-raised chickens fed organic grains.
