“Winner, winner, chicken dinner,” as the saying goes, and it’s not without good reason: chicken is a staple of many cuisines around the world, including American cuisine, where it can be found on the menu of nearly every restaurant in the country. In 2016, the National Chicken Council (yes, that’s a real thing!) predicted that in the United States, Americans would consume 91.8 pounds of chicken per capita. In the week leading up to the Fourth of July alone, Americans buy 700 million pounds of the popular poultry. That’s a lot of chicken!
Chicken With a South Beach Flavor

There’s a reason why chicken is the most popular protein in the United States. It’s healthy, inexpensive, versatile, and delicious! But with so many different restaurants serving chicken in every way imaginable, how do you know which places have the best chicken?
A New Kind of Fast Food!
If you’re looking for the convenience of fast food without sacrificing nutrition, rotisserie chicken is the way to go! Rotisserie chicken is cooked by way of skewering the (usually) whole chicken on a spit and rotating it over a heat source. This not only ensures even cooking, but also enables the chicken to cook in its own juices, producing tender meat with a crispy skin. Any additional flavor comes from the use of dry spices, which is compatible with many different types of cuisine, including the Latin cuisine that the South Beach area is known for. Because rotisserie chicken is not fried in oil or breaded in any starches, it is considerably lower in fat and has virtually no carbohydrates. In addition, it’s high in protein and contains vitamins and minerals such as iron, potassium, and Vitamin B12. It’s a perfect summer food: healthy, affordable, and easy to eat. At Chicken Brasa, you can even get it delivered, saving you more time for the beach!
