Meat requirements

The best cutlets will be made from chicken pulp. Do not use the skin, it will affect the taste of the dish. The most useful is the meat of young chicken, it is really rich in such important components as iron, magnesium, protein, and B vitamins.

It is not in vain that chicken meat is an obligatory "participant" in the diet menu. There are no carbohydrates, and a small amount of fat is concentrated only in the skin. Therefore, if you like crispy fried skin, this addiction will affect your weight.

But on the wings the skin is not oily, so it is better not to remove it from this part of the chicken.

The most delicious chicken is homemade. If you have the opportunity to purchase meat from farmers, it is better to do so. Unfortunately, chicken from the supermarket can be stuffed with antibiotics, and this not only reduces the quality of the products, but also affects the taste.

Most often, cutlets are fried, but this is not the most healthy and useful option. In addition, after fried meat food, heartburn often occurs. Therefore, it is better to try baking the cutlets, and gradually switch to steam cooking. This will be the best heat treatment option.
