Carb Free Lemon and Rosemary Roasted Chicken

The beginning of fall signals cool nights, comfy sweaters and awesome comfort foods. Chicken is naturally carb free and fills the house with warm smells with the light tang of citrus and rosemary. Stuffing the chicken with cooking apples adds a little sweetness but apples are discarded after roasting. Pair this with your favourite root vegetable and a glass of Pinot Noir.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
