Roast Chicken with Persimmons and Olives with Persimon®

Let’s first get my confession out of the way before we start. I had never tried persimmons before and this was my first time! I always wondered what they tasted like but never saw them being sold in singles, only by the case. (Update: Singles sold in Chinatown or Harvest Wagon) Persimmons are sweet and sort of taste like cantaloupes, peaches or mangoes. The ones I bought are ready to eat as soon as you purchase them. Even better, they’re seedless, pit-less and you don’t have to peel the skin off! Persimon® are available November through January, if they last! I called 3 Sobeys and a Foodland. They were all sold out (End of November), so they are clearly high in demand. At the end I found a box at Metro! Yay! This particular brand Persimon ®, are ripe and ready to eat, while other brands you may have to wait for them…

Easy Garlic Chicken

This recipe goes amazing with potatoes, steamed veggies or rice. The outcome of this recipe is a sweet, spicy (depending on whether you add spices), garlic glazed chicken. I recommend using aluminum foil on top of your roasting/baking pan for an easier clean up. Ingredients 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 4 garlic cloves, minced 4 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon olive oil Add spices and herbs as desired. (I used a spice rub from William Sonoma and spices by Club House) Directions Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking/roasting pan with aluminum foil, lightly coat or brush oil on foil. In a small sauté pan, sauté garlic with olive oil until tender. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add additional…
