What can I say, I need and want to loose 40 pounds and my diet starts today!
Hoping that my friends and members of the "Foodies!" group will add their favorite diet recipes. I refuse to just eat raw carrots and other veggies and fruits. I must have something with wonderful taste. Each of the diet recipes that I share will be titled, "A Fat Boy's Recipe - followed with the recipe's name." As with the title of this article. If you post a diet article please use gender appropriate titles.
I'm serious with this round-robin attempt, and hope others will give assistance to me and others who might also be wanting to loose weight.
Out in Arizona we often like something a little different, something with a "hot" kick, something right out of the southwest. So I decided to share a recipe I obtained off the web a couple of years ago. The recipe came from the following website: clintonhillfoodie.com/2009/03/spicey-roast-chicken-with-sweet-onions.html
Spicey Roast Chicken with Sweet Onions, by Brian
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp praprika
1/2 tbsp cayene pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 whole chicken cut into service pieces
1 sweet onion cut into wedges
Preheat oven to 500 with rack in the upper third.
Mix olive oil and spices in a large mixing bowl. Throw the onion and chicken into the mixture and toss until everything is evenly coated.
Arrange the chicken pieces in a shallow baking dish, skin side down, along with the onion.
Bake for 30 minutes!
Simple and easy, and spicey. However, I sprinkle the chicken pieces with "Datil Pepper" hot sauce. If you want to chase down the company whch makes this sauce you can order their catalog and place an order, call 800- HOT-DATL. No I don't wOork for this company.
A Little Something Extra
Often for a second side dish I bake carrots in a smaller baking-dish.
