Health Tips:: Garlicky Grilled Chicken, Portobello, and Radicchio SaladJan 21st

Garlicky Grilled Chicken, Portobello, and Radicchio Salad
Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence

 Total Time:   35 min  Prep:    10 min  Cook:    25 min

Yield:  4 to 6 servings

Level:   Easy

4 cloves garlic, smashed and chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

1/2 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
1 (4 to 4 1/2 pound) chicken, cut in 1/2
4 portobello mushrooms, brushed clean and stems removed

2 small heads radicchio, halved
Watercress, to serve


Put the garlic onto a cutting board and sprinkle it with about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Using the side of a large knife, slowly mash the garlic into a paste. Put the garlic paste into a small bowl and blend in 1/2 cup olive oil, parsley, and thyme leaves.

Pour half the mixture over the chicken and season it with salt and pepper. Set the chicken aside to marinate while you prepare the other ingredients for grilling.

Heat the grill to medium high. Drizzle half the remaining marinade into the mushrooms and half onto the cut side of the radicchios. Season both with salt and pepper and place them on the grill over indirect heat. Grill until the mushrooms and radicchio are soft, about 10 to 15 minutes; set them aside to cool while you cook the chicken

Put the chicken on the grill and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes per side, or until cooked through and juices run clear. Set aside until cool enough to handle.

To serve, cut the chicken into pieces, cut the mushrooms into quarters, and cut the radicchio into wedges. Gently toss everything together with some fresh watercress and an extra drizzle of olive oil.

:: How to Use Cardio Machines at the GymJan 10th

How to Use Cardio Machines at the Gym

Get the most out of each drop of sweat with these simple pointers from gym guru Mary Ann Browning, owner of Brownings Fitness in New York City.

Stationary bike:

Set the seat so that it is at hip height when
you're standing next to the bike and cycle with a tall posture "as if
you're balancing a book on your head," Browning says. Aim to maintain a
minimum speed of 85 revolutions per minute for a solid workout, and don't point
your toes when pedaling. "It works more of the quads
instead of the butt and

"Elliptical trainer: "

Pretend you're running," Browning says, using mostly leg power and grasping the
handles occasionally. Warm up to a pace that feels brisk (a 5 or 6 on an
intensity scale of 1 to 10), and add resistance when you're cruising along.


To really work your lower body, only lightly touch or let go of the handles and
press through your heels. "Stretch your quads and calves  afterward," Browning says.

Treadmill: Run in the middle of the tread. "Being too close to the dashboard doesn't allow
you to run in your normal gait," Browning says. Set the incline to 1
percent to replicate the feel of running outdoors.
