According to Food Smart, chicken is an excellent low-calorie, low-sodium and low-fat source of protein with approximately 25 grams per 3-ounce serving. It also provides iron, zinc, phosphorus and essential, energy-boosting B vitamins. We recommend seeking out local poultry products at your grocery store from Colorado farms to include our go-to brand: Red Bird Farms.
This recipe also features Colorado’s celebrated starch, potatoes! This versatile food, popular worldwide and adored by folks of all ages is fat-free and gluten-free, as well as acting as a great source of vitamin B6, niacin, potassium and iron. In fact, a single medium sized potato provides nearly half the daily adult requirement (100 mg) of vitamin C, essential to boosting your immunity during these chilly months.
