Roasted Flaxseed Chicken

Flaxseeds are a nutritious small seed that provides several health benefits. It is a good plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been found in some studies to help with cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation. Flaxseeds are also rich in lignans and high in fibre. Have you ever considered adding some extra fibre and healthy fats to a meat dish by adding an extra ingredient with no extra effort? What an easy way to boost your day!
