Chicken is packed with essential nutrients like phosphorus, vitamin B, and vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles. Animal protein sources, like chicken, are complete proteins which provide our bodies with all nine of the essential amino acids. These amino acids are the building blocks necessary for healthy hormone balance, weight management, and steady blood sugar.
We love roasting up this classic, whole chicken recipe at the beginning of the week for our family to enjoy. This juicy and flavorful chicken makes delicious leftovers and is certain to become a favorite in your recipe box.
1 Organic Roasting Chicken* (5-6 lb., Free Range)
1 Bunch Fresh Thyme
3 Heads Garlic
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Cup White Wine
¾ Cup Organic Chicken Stock
Black Pepper (Freshly Ground)
*Purchasing a Healthy Chicken: Avoid conventional, unhealthy, factory farmed chicken and choose a healthy bird for your family's dinner. Ideally, purchase your chicken from a local farm where you can trust the source (i.e. a truly free range chicken)! Second best, look for a bird labeled Certified Organic along with the Animal Welfare Approved, Certified Humane, or Global Animal Partnership labels.
