Chicken is very cheap and affordable.
For those who are trying to consume less fat/calories, chicken offers a smaller amount than other meats but with the same protein content. In other words, chicken is protein-dense.
Chicken stock/broth offers a significant source of gelatin. As chicken bones have a lower density than other meats, the collagen and gelatin are far easier to extract.
Chicken provides a decent source of necessary vitamins and minerals, particularly selenium, potassium, phosphorus, and B vitamins.
