While we’re pretty sure you already know that our rotisserie chicken tastes good to you, we bet you didn’t know just how good for you it actually is.

Here at Zankou Chicken, we work hard to give Southern Californians what they deserve – healthy, tasty food that families can depend on. We are always humbled when our hard work pays off and we get shout outs like:

• O.C.’s Best Roast Chicken

• Grammy Award-Winning Beck’s Favorite

• The L.A. Times LA Marathon Pick

• LAist’s “Food That Will Respect You in the Morning

But we’re also happy to know that the food we’re most well known for, the chicken, is a healthy choice for our customers. Living the #ZankouLife is a healthy one and here are just five reasons why:

1. Chicken relieves stress!

We know that time on the 405, rampant wildfires, and the set life can be stressful. Thankfully, according to The Health Site, chicken has tryptophan and Vitamin B5, two nutrients that provide a calming effect.

2. Chicken can help you stay strong!

Chicken includes several branched chain amino acids, which simply means the stuff that helps builds cardiac and skeletal muscles. Who doesn’t want more muscles?

3. Chicken helps children get taller!

We can’t promise that Zankou can turn your child into a future LeBron, but if you’re looking to improve their height, chicken is the answer.

4. Chicken is good for your love muscle!

The American Heart Association recommends eating lean, skinless chicken as it is rich in B6 and can help prevent heart attacks. Can we say chicken wrap anyone?

5. Chicken is good for your metabolism!

We knew there was a reason why all of our Zankou customers look so great! Per Active Beat, chicken “keeps blood vessels healthy, energy levels high, and metabolism burning calories so you can manage a healthy weight and activity level.”
