Let’s talk chicken!
Last month, as part of my ambassadorship with Chicken Farmers of Canada, we got to know our chicken farmers better, so now let’s learn something new about the chicken we enjoy! We already know how delicious and nutritious it is. Chicken is an excellent source of protein, micronutrients such as niacin, phosphorous, B6, B12, Vitamin D, calcium, iron and zinc. Chicken is the new superfood!
But there is a myth that we all have heard, of how chicken cooked with the skin on is somehow higher in fat and calories. It’s not true! As part of a recent nutrition study undertaken by Chicken Farmers of Canada (full details to be released later this month) a remarkable breakthrough was discovered. Chicken cooked with the skin on has the same nutritional value as a skinless cut of chicken! Yes it’s true. You can cook your chicken with the skin on, retain all the moisture and flavour you love, then remove it before you eat, and your chicken has all the same health benefits of a skinless cut. So how is this possible? Learn more about it all here on the Chicken Farmers of Canada site!
This is good news because it means you can enjoy all different cuts of chicken, including the more affordable cuts like bone-in, skin-on chicken, and get all the same health benefits! Good for you and good for your wallet!
All this talk of chicken must be leaving you hungry? Let’s eat. I made you something delicious! I grabbed this recipe from the chicken.ca site, where you can find dozens of delicious recipes.
Chicken Cape Kabobs
You can make these kabobs with any cut of chicken that you prefer, and add what ever types of vegetables you like! They’re versatile, loaded with flavour and perfect for BBQ season!
The marinade for this chicken is out-of-this-world delicious. Really truly. It’s garlicky, lemony and so so flavourful! I’ll definitely be using this marinade again and again!

Delish! And so pretty, no?
