Hi vaishali!
Welcome to congrats on your pregnancy.Chicken is a highly nutritious food loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is a mine of the leanest proteins and 9 essential amino acids-being the building blocks of muscles; it contains unsaturated and saturated fatty acids.
Take care to ensure that the chicken is fresh and cooked well before eating to avoid diseases caused by the listeria bacteria. Heating it above 160 degress Fahrenheit usually ensures that bacteria have been killed. Do not eat cold pre-cooked chicken as it may contain bacteria. A serving size of 100 grams or 2 slices of cooked chicken meat is recommended a day for pregnant women.
