This time of year the newspapers and magazines is full of dieting, exercise and healty eating tips. Everyone and has new years resolutions of a healthier slimmer life and runs to the gym to sign up. This goes on for a couple of months then for most it gets to hard, the motivation fades and life goes on as usual. It is quite funny to think about how this occurs every year. And in Norway where I live, we eat more chicken in january and febuary than any other month of the year.
For this recipe I have used a whole chicken instead of ready cut pieces. I like the breast fillet attatched to the bone with the skin on, it get more moist that way. But you can choose whatever cut you want.
Clementines has a mild and sweeter flavour than oranges. —myfoodpassion
