Roast Chicken Quarters with Potatoes and Tomatoes Recipe

This succulent chicken recipe is packed with antioxidants and takes just 20 minutes to prep. Chicken quarters are the whole leg with thigh and drumstick (or the breast with backbone and wing). If you like dark meat, this is a very healthy and flavorful way to prepare it. Try the same recipe with smaller cuts of chicken and omit the first 15 minutes of cooking time.

  • 1 medium lime, sliced
  • 6 fresh rosemary sprigs, leaves removed and chopped, stems discarded (reserve 2 whole sprigs)
  • 4 medium Yukon gold potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 5 kumquats, cut in half (or 1 lemon, sliced)
  • 6 fresh parsley sprigs, chopped

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
  2. Place chicken in large oven-proof roasting pan lightly coated with spray.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Drizzle with lime juice and broth; top with lime slices and chopped rosemary.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Add potatoes, tomatoes, kumquats (or lemons), parsley, and rosemary sprigs; bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the thickest part, juices run clear, and vegetables are tender.
  7. Remove skin before serving.

3 Simple Ways to Lose Weight

I’m going to tell you 3 simple ways you can lose weight, starting TODAY!

1. Eat a healthy breakfast:
This wakes up your body and mind. It gets your “engine” going. When your body wakes up and receives the nutrients it needs to begin the day – you will feel better, have more energy, will think more clearly and you will be less likely to “binge” later in the day. Studies show people who eat breakfast are thinner and healthier than people who don’t.

Some examples of healthy foods: yogurt, fruit and granola | whole wheat bread with PB | whole grain cereal with fiber | egg or egg whites | Fiber bar | Shakeology

2. Reduce (eliminate) your sugar intake:
Seriously, cut out the soda and sugary drinks. Drink water during the day. Have your morning coffee, if you need it (without the sugar) and then aim to drink 6-8 cups of water per day. Also in the sugar category …. cut out the sweets. If you need something, take a taste. If you can’t control yourself then stay away from the temptation.

3. Move more:
I didn’t say exercise …. but that’s what I mean. People tend to think negative thoughts about the word exercise, so I’ll say move more. Walk, take the stairs, play with your kids, walk the dog, join a class, dance around your house … just MOVE MORE. When you move more you’ll have more energy, you’ll feel better, you’ll burn more calories (which helps with weight loss). Once you move more on a regular basis, you will want to add in an exercise program. But just begin by moving more.

It’s that simple. If you really want to lose weight and live healthier, make small changes and do it! Here is my challenge to you: Do these 3 things for the next week and see how you feel. Message me, comment below, email me … let me know after 7 days!

Be YOUR best,
Missy
