Recipe: Roast Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

Written by

Fed Up is a new documentary that asks why obesity and disease rates have skyrocketed in the U.S., most alarmingly in children and even for newborns. Produced by Laurie David, who also produced the Academy Award winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, a major message of the film is that many of our health problems are rooted in our collective disengagement in the kitchen, opting for processed foods instead.

David also wrote The Family Cooksa new cookbook that offers solutions to the problems raised in the film, in the form of recipes and tips for families wanting to cook healthy and approachable meals and snacks.

This recipe for roasted chicken is a great weeknight staple for busy families looking to get more involved in cooking wholesome foods and for those who already have.

An interview with Laurie David and the director of Fed Up Stephanie Soechtig will air this Saturday at 11:00 AM on Good Food on 89.9 KCRW.
