My take on chicken consumption

Being a researcher and an experienced media writer, I have been unavoidably tempted to take a look at the advantage of eating chicken. Chicken was once a rare commodity in Sierra Leone, now it is readily available with wide brands at affordable rates for the average Sierra Leonean.

This has prompted the thoughts, making me put words together and explaining why chickens need to be eaten and the health benefits it brings to a society as malnourished and as poor as Sierra Leone.

There are so many ways to prepare this protein. Chicken can be cooked fried, roasted, in stew, in soup, and in salad. Hence it is being the number one consumed staple menu item in every home.


Chicken is the most affordable protein meat and is widely considered to better than red meat that has less fat content and provides wholesome nutrition. Just one –half pound of roasted chicken leg my findings state, contains more than 70 grams of protein.

Compare that to meat, you will realize anyhow that a half pound of cooked meat provides about 59 grams of protein, which is variance of about eleven grams.

Sierra Leone is very fortunate to have brand like Simmons and case farms which are frozen chicken legs from across the road from United States of America. Both of which pass the highest levels of testing and get approval from United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Furthermore every carton is totally-certified. Thanks to the great work of Sierra Leone Standards bureau who themselves certify that frozen chicken is fit for human consumption.

But as I righteously take a break, my last words are that, you can enjoy wealth only if you are in good health.
