Healthy Roasted Chicken
Sometimes simple is best! This is one of those times. Easy Roasted Chicken is a simple and healthy meal that I made for dinner last night.
In my new Dutch oven, I put in some carrots, celery, olive oil, salt and pepper. I put the chicken on top of the vegetables, brushed olive oil on the chicken and sprinkled salt and pepper on top. This was easy to put together and it was delicious.
With the leftovers, I can make some of my old favorites like Picky Palate's Cheesy Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole (I reduce the cheese and it's still great) and my Healthier Chicken Pot Pie.
Here in SE Texas, it hasn't been cold enough to keep me from running and riding my bike outside. It's in the 20's and 40's when I'm exercising. Lately, I've picked up the pace a little when I run - something that's been out of reach for awhile. It could be that more riding is helping my overall fitness or maybe it's because I know that the faster I run, the sooner I'm done!
