6 ways with chicken that aren't bland and boring

It's no wonder really that healthy eating has a less-than-great reputation. If you think it's all steamed broccoli and dry chicken breast, of course you'll want to avoid anything deemed "healthy" or "clean" like the plague. Where's the fun? While eating for good health is, of course, advised, we also believe eating should be an enjoyable experience.
