Healthy food doesn't have to be bland. This weeknight chicken is bursting with flavor from a bright, citrus marinade laced with Latin flavors.

How to Keep Your Chicken Moist


Healthy eating doesn't mean that you have to resort to relatively bland boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Because of their low fat content, they tend to dry out extremely easily and can have a rubbery texture. Especially when roasting, buying a different cut of chicken will drastically improve your results:

Use bone-in chicken to keep your chicken moist and full of flavor.

The bone keeps the chicken tender and juicy when cooking and doesn't add any fat so you can still keep the dish healthy. If you're on a budget, bone-in chicken is significantly cheaper than its boneless alternative.
