Chipotle mayo is a great add!
It's based on the ratios. This recipe makes 2 servings, and there are 66 grams of fat per serving. The majority of the fat comes from the butter, while the rest comes from the chicken thighs. (If you add the optional mayo, that would increase the fat.)
I love a quick, weeknight dinner!
Thank you for sharing. Protein is the key priority here, the butter is added for flavor. If you find it's too much, you can definitely cut back.
Hi, Alexis! Yes, that would be perfectly fine!
However, I need a bit of clarification. When I select 1 serving, the list of ingredients and the recipe says 200 grams of Chicken, but the nutrition chart says I consume a total of 36 grams of Protein per serving. Can you please clarify this? I am a bit worried that I am consuming too much protein (200 grams) of chicken per serving. And I am facing this problem with several recipes.
In nutrition information in general, the weight of the meat is not the amount of protein. Almost all foods are made up of different combinations of multiple macros. For instance, a chicken thigh and a chicken breast - even in the same weight of the actual cut of meat, the breast would have more protein and less fat than the thigh. Although macros are listed in "grams" they are not actual weights.
