7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

7 Chicken Recipes For Diabetics

Onions and leeks are from the same family, but they taste different. Leeks are sweeter and milder than onions. In this recipe, chicken is glazed in Dijon mustard and roasted with a fusion of leeks, onions, garlic, and shallots. According to a 2015 animal study , onions lower high blood sugar levels when given with the diabetes drug metformin. 3. Oven-Fried Parmesan Chicken Drumsticks Think you cant bite into a fried chicken leg if you have diabetes? Think again! The chicken drumsticks in this recipe are coated in a savory Parmesan cheese and breadcrumb crust. Theyre oven-baked instead of fried. Chicken drumsticks are higher in fat than chicken breasts, so be sure to balance your meal with low-fat sides. Drumsticks are still a great source of protein and much cheaper to buy. This recipe brings to mind apple-picking in early fall, but its tasty any time of year. Tart green apples and thyme are the perfect complements for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Since the fiber in apples is a good carb that doesnt raise blood sugar levels, you can rest assured youre eating a healthy meal. A great roast chicken is a staple in many recipe arsenals. Its the perfect meal option for an elegant dinner party or a casual family dinner. For this recipe, apples, onions, garlic, and spices are stuffed into the cavity of a whole chicken. The chicken then gets an olive oil rub-down and is roasted to moist perfection. Make sure to peel off the skin before eating the meat. Use the leftovers to create a healthy chicken salad made with Greek yogurt and celery. 6. Marinated Grilled Chicken with Zucchini If youve got raw chicken in the fridge, a bumper crop of zucchini, and a grill, then youve got the makings of a healthy dinner. After being marinated in a blend of clementine orange juice, olive Continue reading >>

Healthy Mexican Chicken Verde Quinoa Casserole Recipe

Healthy Mexican Chicken Verde Quinoa Casserole Recipe

This cheesy Mexican quinoa casserole is a crowd pleaser! With 10 grams of fiber and 34 grams of protein per serving, its a stick to your ribs kind of meal. Better yet, its made in only one dish to minimize cleanup. Besides the fact that this recipe is easy, delicious, and only requires a casserole dish, knife, and cutting board to prepare, one of my favorite things about this dish is just how easy it is to adapt to a variety of tastes and dietary needs. See all of the suggestions below. Optional: avocado, hot sauce, cilantro, and green onions for serving Spray a large casserole dish with oil. In the dish, mix together chicken, quinoa, black beans, yellow squash, mushrooms, chiles, salsa, spices, salt, and pepper. Pour broth over the top, which helps move the quinoa to the bottom to cook through. Top with frozen peppers and onions. Cover and place in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove lid and sprinkle cheese over the top. Place back in the oven and bake for another 30 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes so the liquids can finish absorbing, then serve with desired garnishes. Quinoa, the fiber-rich South American pseudo grain, makes the perfect base for this casserole. It bakes up perfectly tender in the oven with just a little bit of chicken broth. Most grocery stores sell quinoa, but if you cant find it or arent sure if youll like it swap in brown rice. If you use brown rice, top it with 2 cups of very hot chicken broth before baking and keep the casserole covered the whole time in the oven, as brown rice takes a bit longer to cook. When the rice is tender, sprinkle the casserole with cheese and place back in the oven another 5 minutes to melt. For a meatless version, swap the chicken for cubes of tofu , crumbled tempeh, or add more beans. Try a mix of pinto beans and black be Continue reading >>

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry + The Pre-diabetes Diet Plan

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry + The Pre-diabetes Diet Plan

Eating for overall good health and diabetes prevention just got a whole lot easier with this family-pleasing recipe for Chicken Veggie Stir Fry. Over 80 million Americans of all ages have pre-diabetes, which puts them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes—a disease that can lead to blindness, kidney failure, and blood vessel damage. Obesity, inactivity, a low fiber diet, and a high intake of sugar-sweetened beverages are common risk factors for diabetes. To the rescue is registered dietitian, Hillary Wright, M.Ed, RD whose new book, The Pre-Diabetes Diet Plan outlines simple eating and exercise strategies aimed at reversing and preventing diabetes. As part of her pre-diabetes diet plan, Hillary recommends filling half your plate with non-starchy vegetables, 25% with a lean protein food, and the remaining 25% with a starchy veggie or whole grain. She’s not anti carb, but instead, she emphasizes the Two Qs: quality (whole grain) and quantity (not too much). I served our stir fry with whole grain brown rice and stuck to a 2/3 cup portion.
