Roast Chicken with Lemon Garlic Brussel Sprouts and Potatoes

Monica’s challenge from our “Weight Loss Group” was to try a new vegetable. She choose to make “Roast Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes” from AllRecipes. This was a hit, and will be added to Family Favorites.

Monica said that this recipe changed her attitude toward brussels sprouts. In the past she felt brussels sprouts were mushy and overcooked, however this recipe gave the vegetable flavor and crunch.  

Monica not only critiqued the recipe, but also gave the ”Weight Loss Group” the benefits for adding brussels sprouts to your diets.

Brussels Sprouts:

“Brussels sprouts a good source of protein, iron and potassium, but they also offer other benefits that can boost your overall health.” For more benefit check out this article  Health Benefits of Eating Brussels Sprouts.

 Great job Monica, we are all excited about trying this recipe.
