Healthy holiday recipes that will leave guests wanting more
We love the holidays – it’s a time to relax from the grind and spend time where it matters most: with our friends and loved ones.
But, let’s be honest: we’re looking forward to overindulging on food almost as much.
The holidays are a time of constant eating and belt loosening, so we’ve scoured all over for the best tasting entrees that won’t pile on the pounds:
Lemon - Thyme Roasted Chicken
Sometimes simple ingredients simply can't be beat. For this recipe, rub a simple lemon-and-butter mix over a whole chicken before roasting. The result will be a to-die-for super juicy, flavorful meat and perfectly crisp skin.
