There is hardly any food more common, versatile, multicultural, healthy, affordable, and tasty than chicken. Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this ubiquitous bird finds its place on most American tables. There are so many ways you can cook a chicken, either a whole bird or any specific parts of it, making your dish equally delicious regardless of what parts of it you cook. However, from the health standpoint, not all parts of chicken are created equal.

Although chicken is generally healthier than other animal protein sources, such as beef, pork, or lamb, some parts are more preferable than others. That is especially important for people with diabetes, since their diet is directly correlated with how successfully they manage their disease.

If you are coping with diabetes, it’s in your best interest to be very moderate with chicken wings, drumsticks, or thighs, as these parts are loaded with fat and LDL cholesterol that can potentially affect your heart condition. Instead, your best choice would be the chicken breast, preferably skinless to reduce consumption of cholesterol.

The chicken breast (the white meat) is the leanest part of the bird and a great source of protein. You can eat it often and not get bored with it as the chicken breast is particularly versatile cooking-wise. – You can grill, fry, barbeque, roast, boil, or bake the chicken breast in a variety of ways. Just to make sure to avoid recipes with sugar-packed gravies and glazing sauces.
