Tuesday Tips: How to Make a Bed

No, I don't mean that flat platform you sleep on. I'm talking about a bed of ingredients that kick roasting up a notch.
  • Bake your fish or chicken pieces on a bed of celery, onion and parsley. It will flavor the protein and keep things from sticking. get creative and fold the veggie into mashed potatoes for a flavorful side dish.
  • For a whole chicken, use larger pieces of carrot, celery sticks and thick onion slices. Makes a great platform. Save the veggies to chop and toss with leftover chicken and a dollop of mayo for a delicious chicken salad.
