Chicken burgers are mouth watering and are becoming huger as the days go by. There are the famous Double Down burgers with two fried chicken breasts, the new Quadruple Down that comes with four fried chicken breasts, three pieces of bacon, Swiss cheese, pepper jack cheese, and special sauce. And then there are all kinds of chicken burgers imaginable in between.
Chicken breast is a rich source of quality protein and considered the leanest meat. Bacon contains natural fats and salts, although considered as health risk by most. Cheese is a rich supplier of calcium, fat, protein and phosphorus. Special sauce used in KFC burgers is the Colonels’ Sauce, which remains a secret recipe though advertised to contain eleven herbs and spices.
Chicken Burgers Are So Yummy!
But should you be eating these burgers on a regular basis? Even though chicken breast is the leanest meat, it contains significant amounts of cholesterol and most fats in bacon and cheese are saturated fats. But it’s so yummy and there is that possibility… tiwyh.
In addition, a lot of chicken burgers contain about 1,380 milligrams of sodium. For a single sitting, this is more than enough salt required in an entire day. The American Heart Association recommends not more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium per day.
So why not think in terms of moderation? You deserve to enjoy your life…Your heart and your body will thank you for it.
