Eat– for Good Health

Roasted Apple-Rosemary Chicken is good served over brown or wild rice with a generous field greens salad.    Calories for the whole shebang are 300, and much less fat than one single slice of cheese pizza.  Funny thing about pizza– there’s a lot of talk about easing up on fat-not-light cheese, but pizza parlors don’t do it.  Nevertheless, tomorrow I’ll have ways to shape up your pizza.

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. In a large roasting pan, toss the apples, leeks, rosemary, oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Season the chicken with ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper and nestle, skin-side up, among the vegetables.
  3. Roast until the chicken is cooked through and the apples and leeks are tender, 40 to 45 minutes.
