So, what is white meat?

White meat refers to poultry meats, such as chicken, turkey, and duck, that are light in color when cooked. Compared to red meat, white meat has a lower fat content and is a good source of lean protein, making it a popular choice for those looking for healthier options. The texture of white meat can vary depending on the specific cut and cooking method, but it is generally tender and juicy. It can be seasoned with a variety of spices and herbs to create a delicious flavor profile. Whether roasted, grilled, or baked, white meat is a versatile and nutritious ingredient that can be enjoyed in a wide range of dishes.
