APS

BACK TO SCHOOL BASH BACKED BY GEORGIA NATURAL GAS

Georgia Natural Gas is proud to be a returning sponsor of the annual Atlanta Public Schools Back to School Bash – held each year prior to the start of school. This free event is exclusively for Atlanta Public School students and their families to enjoy special exhibitions, fun activities for children, immunizations, health screenings, educational items, and after-school and community resources. Students can receive a free backpack filled with school supplies by showing their APS report card.

“We’re so happy to be a part of this fantastic event again,” says GNG’s Maurice Baker who also serves on the board of directors of the nearby Centennial Place Academy. “We want every child to be back-to-school ready and we’re happy to sponsor, volunteer, and do our part to help ensure that it is an exciting and productive experience for students and their families. We’ve witnessed first-hand the positive impact the event has had on school attendance — so we know it is making a difference!”

ENERGY SAVING TIP

Before cool weather sets in this fall, now is the time to make sure your doors and windows are properly sealed to keep temperatures in the home controlled. Be sure to check behind electrical outlets, pipes along attic hatches and around your chimney as well for air leaks. You’ll also want to check the insulation level in your attic. Proper insulation can reduce heating costs by up to 30 percent!

GNG TrueBlue Advantage Recipe

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

PREP
20 min
COOK
1hr 20m
Ready In
2 hrs

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup chicken broth
1 (4 pound) whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 cup butter, cut into 1 tablespoon sized pieces
2 navel oranges, halved
salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 sprigs fresh rosemary
2 sprigs fresh thyme

DIRECTIONS:Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour the chicken broth into a small roasting pan, and set aside.

Loosen the skin from the breasts and thighs of the chicken. Stuff the butter pieces evenly underneath the skin of the chicken, and place into the roasting pan. Squeeze the orange halves over the chicken, and stuff the orange halves into the chicken cavity. Tie the legs together with kitchen twine. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper to taste, then rub in the minced garlic. Drizzle the melted butter all over the chicken, then lay the herb sprigs onto the breast and around the legs.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and baste the chicken with the pan juices. Continue cooking until the chicken is no longer pink, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), 1 to 2 hours. Baste the chicken every 10 to 15 minutes after you uncover it. Once cooked, allow the chicken to rest out of the oven for 10 minutes before slicing.
