A Yummy Way To Help Boost Metabolism …

In the past few posts, the focus has been about metabolism, what it is, how it works, and how having a chronic pain condition or chronic health condition can add to slowing the process down. In this post, we want to share a natural, whole food way to help speed up your metabolism.

So, grab your pen or do the “copy & paste” for this recipe …

Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts (Lean Protein)

 Serves 4

Ingredients: 

 

2 lemons, sliced

1 tablespoon rosemary

1 tablespoon thyme

2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)

dash salt & pepper

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

 Putting It Together:

Preheat oven to 425F.  Layer ½ of the lemon slices on the bottom of a baking dish.  Sprinkle with ½ of the herbs and ½ of the sliced garlic.   Place the chicken breasts on top and sprinkle salt & pepper.  Place remaining lemon, herbs and garlic on top of the chicken.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Cover with a lid or foil.  Bake for 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through.  If you want the chicken to be a bit more “roasty” then remove the lid/foil and broil for another few minutes (watching carefully not to burn it).  Serve & enjoy! Tip: You can add a leftover sliced chicken breast to your salad for lunch the next day!
