Power up with the best pro­tein-packed poul­try din­ners.

This cut is a sta­ple in the gym-goer’s fridge for very good rea­son. Each 100g por­tion packs around 23g of pro­tein, sim­i­lar to that of your stan­dard shake – only with­out that sickly, chalky straw­berry af­ter­taste.

B WING

Don’t get into a flap, re­search pub­lished in Molec­u­lar Me­tab­o­lism

found the amino acids in mor­eish wing meat tar­get a group of brain cells that help you feel fuller more quickly. A smart choice in our book.

C THIGH

Although more en­ergy dense, the high mo­noun­sat­u­rated fat con­tent found in thighs has a pos­i­tive ef­fect on your car­dio­vas­cu­lar disease and stroke risk, says re­search in Cir­cu­la­tion.

D DRUMSTICK

The darker leg meat is richer in B vi­ta­mins, chiefly B3, or niacin, which pro­motes ge­nomic sta­bil­ity and reg­u­lar cell divi­sion, mak­ing tu­mour growth less likely. It clips your cancer risk, ba­si­cally, says a Nu­tri­tion and Cancer study.
