Chicken is one of the best alternatives for those who consume animal proteins. In the kitchen, it is very versatile and nevertheless remains affordable in terms of price. In addition, it is a fairly nutritious meat: it contains significant amounts of minerals – such as iron, zinc, magnesium, selenium, cobalt, phosphorus and chromium – and vitamins, such as A, group B and riboflavin.

Chicken meat also contains all the essential amino acids and provides few calories. In fact, it is considered a lean meat because it contains less than 10% fat in its composition, which are also mostly monounsaturated, or good fats, which is why it is recommended as part of a healthy diet.

Everyone knows that the favorite cut is breast, as it happens to be the leanest meat of the chicken. In addition to being healthy, if prepared correctly, it is tender, juicy and tasty. And with just one small breast fillet, you consume more or less 30% of the protein you need per day.

To vary a little and not always eat the same, Alejandra Mulet teaches us a recipe for simple and tasty duck breast fillet. Icebreaking has a special place here.

In this way we will obtain a sauce that concentrates all the flavor and aroma of the chicken and that, added to the white wine, gives an extra dimension to this much appreciated meat.
