Protein comes in ample amount from foods such as meat, eggs, legumes, dairy products, soy and fish. It serves as the building blocks for the body’s cells, muscles, skin, tissue and organs.
Although, both chicken and egg are infused with high amounts of protein, they do vary on the grounds of the actual protein content per serving. So which is a better source of protein?

Nutritional facts of 100g chicken 


Protein: 27g
Fats: 4g
Calories: 153
Sodium: 51mg
Cholesterol: 75mg



Nutritional facts of 100g eggs


Protein: 13g
Fats: 11g
Calories: 155
Sodium: 124mg
Cholesterol: 373mg

Both chicken and eggs are a low calorie and high protein option. However, chicken contains double the amount of protein than eggs per serving, emerging as a clear winner. Not only that, chicken also contains less cholesterol in comparison to eggs, making it a much healthier food choice.

Nevertheless, eggs possess a number of other health benefits, and should not be ruled out of your daily diet. 

1. Eggs contain riboflavin or Vitamin B2 in abundance, which help in improving your metabolism
2. Egg whites are a rich source of Vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper, all of which are essential for the proper functioning of your body

Even though both chicken and eggs are almost equally healthy, the key to proper health is to eat all you want but in a moderate manner.
