Roasted Chicken stuffed with Vegetables

I am roasting a chicken in the oven right now.  I placed a whole chicken in the oven that I stuffed with an onion, fresh rosemary, 4 cloves of garlic, a lemon and sprinkled it with black pepper.  The chicken cavity is where I placed all of the ingredients….baked at 375 degrees.  This is what I will have for the week to add to my salads.. protein is essential when you are trying to maintain muscle during weight loss, chicken is low in fat and when baked with the cavity infused with these vegetables and spices tastes wonderful.  This chicken will be moist and juicy!

Chicken Pasta with Pizaz

1/4 Head of cauliflower

1 Chicken Breast Shredded

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1/4 Cup Chicken Broth ( or the drippings from the chicken that you baked)

1 Green Bell Pepper cut into pieces

3 cloves of Garlic crushed

1 Onion diced

2 Tablespoons Capers

Salt and Pepper to taste

Crushed Red Pepper

Parmesan Cheese

In a large skillet brown garlic and remove when slightly brown, set aside.  Saute cauliflower first, since this will take slightly longer than the bell pepper and onion which you will want to saute just until slightly tender (do not over cook) Shred  the chicken and add to the mixture along with the capers and chicken broth.  Add salt and pepper to taste but be aware of the fact that the capers will be salty due to the brine that they are in, so you might want to go light on the salt at first.   Meanwhile  you will be preparing the pasta according to package directions…I used small shells for this recipe,  when the pasta is cooked, drain and add to the vegetable mixture, sprinkle with grated cheese.   This meal took about 20 minutes to prepare, it really is Low in Calories, Quick and Easy and Delicious!  The Chicken Breast that I used was from the Baked Chicken that I infused with the Lemon and Onion inside the cavity.  If you try this one you will not be disappointed!

Aside

So I bought two whole chickens one of which I made into soup, the other I froze to use at a later time.   As most of you already know, most of the recipes I share are simple and easy, let’s … Continue reading

The Vegitables will be the last thing you place on the grill since they take just a few minutes to cook. Turkey meat should be cooked well and must maintain 160 degrees in order to be safe to eat.

Grilling can be a very healthy way to cook, be creative! Firm vegitables will hold up to the heat and take no time at all to cook…what a great way to eat right and stay fit!!
