Skinless Chicken Breast
When concerned about fat and calories, the skinless chicken breast from Jewel-Osco Chef's Kitchen makes the healthiest choice. A 4 oz. serving contains 120 calories, 1 g of total fat, 0 g of saturated fat, 75 mg of cholesterol, 85 mg of sodium, 0 g of carbohydrates and 26 g of protein. As a low-energy dense food, the skinless chicken helps you feel full on fewer calories, which can aid in weight management.
The whole chicken at Jewel-Osco makes a good choice for the family that likes both white and dark meat, although the whole chicken is higher in fat and calories than the skinless chicken. A 4 oz. serving contains 250 calories, 19 g of total fat, 6 g of saturated fat, 65 mg of cholesterol, 70 mg of sodium, 0 g of carbohydrates and 19 g of protein.

A 4 oz. portion contains 250 calories, 20 g of total fat, 6 g of saturated fat, 125 mg of cholesterol, 60 mg of sodium, 0 g of carbohydrates and 18 g of protein.

Jewel-Osco Chef's Kitchen chicken tenders are your highest calorie chicken item. In addition to being high in calories, the chicken tenders are also high in sodium.
