The Instacart guide to chicken breast

About chicken breast

Chicken breast is a versatile protein used in a wide variety of cuisines and dishes. Chicken breast is a lean cut that comes from the pectoral muscle of the chicken. Every chicken has one whole breast with two halves. These are usually separated during the butchering process and sold as two individual breasts. The breast is healthy white meat, making it a more desirable cut than thighs, wings, or drumsticks. 

You can find chicken breast with the bone-in or boneless. It is also available with the skin on or removed. If you prefer smaller cuts, you can find chicken tenders, which are chicken breasts cut into fillets.

Chicken breast has many health benefits and is an excellent substitute for red meat. It has vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and copper. A raw, boneless chicken breast contains:
  • 120 calories
  • 2.6 grams of fat
  • 26 grams of protein
  • 0 carbohydrates
Chicken also contains the amino acid tryptophan, which can boost serotonin levels. Serotonin is a hormone that makes people feel happy.

FAQs About Chicken Breast

It's important to thaw chicken safely, or if you don't have time, cook it when it's still frozen. The fastest way to thaw chicken breast is in the microwave, but you need to cook it immediately if you choose this method. Microwaves heat the chicken to a temperature at which bacteria thrive, so you need to cook the breasts to kill any pathogens. 

You can also thaw chicken breasts using cold water by placing them in a leak-proof plastic bag. Fill a bowl or the sink with cold water, and submerge the bagged chicken. Change out the water every 30 minutes until the chicken thaws. The safest way to thaw chicken breast is in the refrigerator. It takes longer than the other methods, but it is safer.
