    i would thing a chicken thigh, dark meat, with the skin still on would be quite high in fat content..

    aahhh, that sounds awesome. Might have to up the chilli content though. If im not crying, its not hot enough.

    Oh and as far as curries go, thighs are the best as they are a lot more moist than breast meat. They add hugely to the flavor.

    well if your not eating it everyday all day it should be okay and most of the real good nutrients is always right underneath the layer of skin so when your eating chicken and you dont eat the skin your also not getting most of the nutrients that come from chick.

    think of it this way, when you cook a chicken most of the nutrients are rising and so therefore the skin keeps it from leaving. But also unless your deep frying your chicken in canola oil or whatever bad oil is its not going to do so much harm to you that you should worry loosing sleep over.

    There are a lot of classic Indian recipes that you can quickly prepare at home. I found some great Chicken Biryani recipes on Living Foodz website which made non-vegetarian recipes better day by day. One of most favourite out of it was the special Chicken Biryani, an easy to make, perfectly balanced with great flavours prepared in just 45 mins.
