Grilled Chicken In Mushroom Sauce
Although grilled chicken breast is fairly low in calories, it’s packed with lean protein, which is beneficial when you’re trying to shed pounds. A 3-ounce chicken breast provides 19 grams of dietary protein. Increasing protein in your diet boosts satiety and your body’s energy expenditure, according to a 2009 study in the “Journal of Nutrition.” This means protein causes you to feel full from fewer calories and helps your body burn extra calories.
