roasted chicken

Happy Sunday! Today for #SundaySupper we’re all sharing heart healthy recipes. February is American Heart Month, and the Sunday Supper Group is bringing you all our knowledge and love for healthy meals this weekend. Heart health consciousness is important not only for men, but for women as well. If you can, visit your doctor or dietitian this month and have an open discussion on heart health. Men and women can have different heart disease symptoms, and the best way of minimizing the risk is to consult your doctor, eat healthy, and exercise regularly. (And between all of the life craziness, be sure to have fun and enjoy life! Love and happiness is never a bad thing for the heart!)

The recipe I’m sharing today is for a roasted chicken served with sauteed kale and brown rice. I wanted to use a lean meat like chicken for the recipe, and use fresh herbs and fruit to infuse it with flavor. Kale goes great with this dish since its a mineral rice green, and has a nice contrast to the chicken after its been cooked with olive oil and lemon.
