Boneless Chicken Breasts: Healthy and Versatile

Boneless chicken breasts fit into almost any meal plan. They're economical, low in fat, easy to prepare and are part of a varied array of recipes. If you can't find boneless chicken breasts on sale, the packaged frozen ones available in most stores are usually an excellent value. They're perfect for salads, skillet dinners, casseroles and pasta dishes, and they work well in many slow-cooker recipes. Several of these recipes are favorites that qualify as comfort food. 

For tender, juicy chicken breasts, use an instant-read thermometer to check for doneness. Cook chicken breasts to a temperature of 165 F, which is the minimum safe temperature for chicken. Chicken breast meat becomes dry and tough when overcooked.
