Supermarket Staple #19: Chicken (skinless thighs, and breasts, whole chicken)

Why It's a Must Have:“These leaner chicken selections are dietary gems because they are great sources of protein and easy to pair with starches, veggies and even fruit,” says Cooper. And removing the skin doesn’t have to mean removing the flavor, especially if you remove it after cooking. “Cooking a chicken or chicken parts with the skin intact and removing the skin before eating is a great way to reap some flavor from the fat, while trimming most of its calories.”

Budget Bonus: To save money, Cooper recommends buying a whole chicken instead of individually packaged breasts or thighs. “Look for whole chickens or cut-up chickens on sale; the meat freezes well and can be thawed for a same-day dinner. Just be sure to check cooking times on packages, however, because the whole bird takes longer to cook.”
