Chilli Chicken – Gravy Style 8 Simple Steps

As mentioned before, chicken is an excellent source of protein. The skin however is high in saturated fat and hence removed before eating. The chicken breast is an ideal meat for any weight loss diet. This recipe has fried chicken, but for overweight/ obese people and those with cardiovascular diseases the chicken pieces can be boiled instead of frying them. They can then be added to the curry. Chicken is low in carbohrydrate and also has a low glycaemic index, again making it a good choice for Dibetics.
