Healthy Chicken Breast Recipe Recipe

We decided to create an easy and healthy chicken breast recipe due to the high demand of requests we received from our website visitors. We totally agree that healthy food can taste pretty good, given the right balance of good and healthy ingredients.


At first, I was tempted to look into a pan-seared healthy chicken breast recipe but quickly decided to test an oven-baked chicken breasts recipe. The reason is simple Oil is saturated fat and is, therefore, high in calories. The addition of oil in frying adds to the calorie count of the food. However, oven baking does not add any additional calories and fats to the foods you cook and is, therefore, always preferred over frying. We also decided to go with avocado oil to back this statement, making this recipe even more healthy. And we recplaced the butter with ghee.


Ghee is butter that goes through a clarification process to eliminate all the water which, we should note, creates a higher smoke point while cooking. This butter alternative contains a fatty acid known as butyrate acid, which may help to reduce inflammation and support digestive health.


We are happy you are here and that we have an opportunity to share this healthy chicken breast recipe with you. Please tell us what you think of this recipe or take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom


Thanks and happy cooking and healthy eating.
