Rutabagas and asparagus with chicken

I decided to put the chicken last in my title because we Americans put way too much emphasis on meat as the main focus of a meal when it should be vegetables and grains as our focus. Plus I put rutabagas first because I find them to be a delicious vegetable that is under utilized.

Rutabagas are also a healthy choice. According to sources I read rutabagas are “low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. They are also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese.” Plus they do a very good job as a stand-in for potatoes.

Lastly, along with the rutabagas we had asparagus which is in season right now and we split a chicken breast because, after all, it is Chicken Monday.
