Although higher in fat than white breast meat, the darker-fleshed chicken pieces – the legs (drumsticks) and thighs – are a more concentrated source of minerals, including zinc and some iron.
Chicken legs and thighs supply more zinc than do chicken breasts. Zinc plays a key role in cell growth and division. In this capacity, zinc helps your body heal itself when you are injured.
