Ingredients:

Chicken Half Breasts with Bone

Rosemary

Lemon slices

Gravy:

Flour 1/2tbls

Coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray, make sure to use a baking dish if you want to make a gravy so the chicken creats its own sauce. Season both sides of the chicken breast and place them in the dish. I like to use my Himalayan Pink Salt, Pepper, Onion/Garlic mix and Paprika. Then with your fingers pry open the chickens fat layer and stuff with a thick slice of lemon and a sprig of rosemary.

Bake at 375 for 1 hour

The gravy is very easy to make, your chicken should be sitting in its own juices, simply transfer the juices to a pot, add a small amount of flour and bring to a boil simmering until you get the desired consistency. I like to add the flour a little at a time, start with just 1-2 teaspoons.

Tip: The best way to serve is with the gravy at the bottom of a plate, never pour the gravy on top or you will lose that nice crispy skin.

I recently found a great deal on Portobello Mushrooms and was stuck thinking what I could make with them, that would also be healthy. I decided to make a healthy Bruschetta like, stuffed Portobello Mushroom side dish that actually taste even better than it looks. It is so easy and simple to make you just can’t go wrong.

Ingredients:

Portobello Mushroom

Smoked mozzarella

Tomatoes

Olive Oil

Lemon

Fresh Basil

Salt & Pepper

Directions:

 In a small bowl add diced tomatoes, small cubes of smoked mozzarella, and sliced fresh basil. squeeze half a lemon and sprinkle lightly with some salt and pepper. Drizzle with some olive oil, stir and, let sit for a few minutes. While your mixture is sitting, simple lightly saute or you can grill your Portobello mushroom. When its ready fill the middle with you Tomato Mozzarella mixture and your done.

It’s especially delish because all the juices from the tomato mixture soak into the mushroom giving it tons of flavor. Enjoy!
