Roasted chicken with nectarines

Roasted chicken with fruits can become a tasty gourmet meal.

Summer brings us a wonderful selection of fruits and nectarines go well with roasted chicken.

I would like to emphasize that poultry meat contains B vitamins that prevent many diseases and take care of the proper functioning of the human body, contain many minerals that the body does not produce and therefore we must take them within a balanced diet. Protein is needed for the renewal and growth of cells in our body. As a healthy source of protein, experts recommend poultry. Fats are essential for our body for energy, but also for dissolving vitamins that are necessary for the eyes, bones, skin and brain. Essential fatty acids also act as antioxidants, help red blood cells to transport oxygen, contribute to normal kidney function, protect muscle tissue from decay, positively affect the rate of metabolism… and we can find them in poultry meat.
Your taste buds will thank you 100 times if you add a glass of Florijanović Škrlet Mons Claudius. In addition to the name škrlet, this variety also has numerous synonyms such as ovnek žuti, ovnek slatki, škrlet tusti, škrtec, etc. The name škrlet comes from the German word scharlach (scarlet fever) because purple-red spots appear on the sunny side of grapes at full maturity. The synonym ovnek žuti originated because the cluster resembles the head of a ram with horns on each side.
