Is ground chicken healthy?

First off – “healthy” means a little something different for everyone! With that being said, I do consider ground chicken to be on the healthier side.

It’s low in calories, carbs, and fat. It’s packed with protein so it keeps you fuller for longer without weighing you down.

What is ground chicken?

Did you know that ground chicken contains both white and dark chicken meat? I think that’s what makes it so good!

It’s on the blander side all by itself. That’s what makes it so much fun to cook with! You can add any seasonings or sauces to ground chicken and it will take them on masterfully.

Can I freeze ground chicken?

You sure can! Freeze raw ground chicken for up to 3 months. Once cooked, it can be frozen for up to 2 months.
