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)
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!
