Herb-Crusted Chicken with Beets and Carrots

Beets contain the vitamin folate, which researchers say may reduce the risk of heart disease. If you have access to baby beets, leave them whole -- they're small enough that you don't need to cut them into quarters.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Make it kid-friendly: Skip the cilantro and basil. Instead sprinkle grated Parmesan in with the cornflake crumbs.

Second-meal secret: Chicken cutlets make great sandwiches. Try them on multigrain bread topped with arugula and a spread made from a combination of Dijon mustard and fat-free mayonnaise.

Pair it with: Ecco Domani 2002 Merlot, Italy, $10 The sweet taste and soft texture of the vegetables pair well with this mellow red wine filled with cherry, spice, and licorice.
