Expert Tips

  • Chicken contains vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 is important for digesting proteins, plus it helps to keep hair and nerves healthy.
  • Lemon juice is very versatile—use it in salad dressings, marinades, and more for a low-calorie burst of fresh flavor. You can extract more juice from a lemon by slicing when at room temperature.
