Chicken is indispensable on the Chinese New Year dinner table, but it is best not to eat this part of the chicken


Although chicken is delicious, if it is cooked by frying, deep-frying, or roasting, it may not only produce carcinogens, but also have the risk of excessive calories. Just try it once in a while, and it is not recommended to eat more.
