Chicken is one of the most versatile meats available. It is also among the healthiest and most nutritious, because it is low in fat and high in protein. And in a country where chicken is the preferred protein, the Best Dressed Chicken – with its superior taste and texture – is the overwhelming favourite of consumer, as well as hotel and restaurant chefs.
