Lemon-rosemary Chicken Thighs

Lemon-rosemary Chicken Thighs

This recipe is great, i used dried rosemary out of convenience as it was what i had on hand. Im sure that fresh would have been better, as it always is, but the taste was still incredible. Ive noticed that the big complaint about this recipe wasnt with the flavor but rather a lack of flavor in the actual meat, that is to say that all the flavor was in the skin. Here is a tip i learned from my Granny, make a slit in the skin and put some of the seasoning under it so that it can reach the meat. Otherwise the skin acts as a shield and absorbs all the flavor while keeping it away from the meat. The chicken skin had amazing flavor and the chicken itself was juicy and tender. My bf loved it! I basted the chicken with its own juices and run off lemon sauce on the 3rd time and it was delicious! Served with some rice cooked in chicken stock and a simple ceasar salad. Definitely will make again! This meal was the result of a 3:30pm "Oh no! What am I going to make for dinner?!" realization. I have frozen thighs that I thawed using the good old water technique. Upon reading almost all the comments, suggestions, and alterations, I settled on a quick marinade. I made the lemon/oil/rosemary mixture twice. The first time, I combined the mixture in a zip top bag with the thighs in. I did add salt and pepper to the mixture. I also added an extra clove of garlic. We *love* garlic in our house. Placed the bag of thighs with mixture marinade in the freezer for 20 minutes, and then to the fridge for 45 minutes. I made the second mixture recipe in a small cup, covered it and set it in the fridge so the flavors could meld. I did add salt, pepper, and extra garlic clove to this mixture as well.After about an hour (20 mins freezer, 45 mins fridge) of marinating, I placed thighs and marinade liq Continue reading >>

Roasted Chicken Thighs

Roasted Chicken Thighs

same here I was wondering what grainy mustard is? thank you! Ground mustard. You know Martha, gotta fancy up everything lol. Can't just be ground or powdered mustard... Chicken thighs are the least expensive meat that I have found. This recipe dresses them up and makes them special. Quick, easy, cheap to make, and my entire family will eat them. This is the 2nd time I've made this quick/easy recipe. The first time I didn't have time to marinate the chicken and it turned out quite tasty. This time, I'm giving it a couple of hours to marinate. Bet those flavors are even better! I just made this fabulous dish and it was the best chicken I've ever tasted! I didn't have time to let chicken marinate and it still was incredible! This will be added to my specialties. This was good! I usually don't like the dark meat but my husband prefers it so I looked up a good recipe for chicken thigh and found this one. I had to cook it longer because it was still partially frozen and I didn't glaze it because it'd be too sweet for my husband (diabetic). I have to admit that it was tasty, especially with the honey-mustard sauce simply spooned over the chicken instead of glazing it. Will make this again! Continue reading >>

Remove and discard chicken skin and any visible fat. Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry with paper towels. (If you choose to leave the skin on, that will increase the fat in this recipe. However, the skin will add to the flavor in this dish.) Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add chicken pieces and brown on both sides (about 7 to 8 minutes). Transfer chicken pieces to two 8-inch foil pans (or 8-inch casserole dishes), 4 chicken pieces per pan. Set aside. Add onion, garlic, bell pepper, and mushrooms to the skillet and saut over low heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is limp and liquid has been absorbed (about 10 minutes). Stir in tomato sauce, oregano, basil, salt, wine, and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce flavors blend (about 15 minutes). Remove from stove and cool for about 15 minutes. Spoon sauce equally over the reserved chicken pieces and top each with half of the olive slices. Cover and seal with aluminum foil. Label and date. Freeze until firm. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375F.

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 >>

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

posted by Chungah on November 29, 2014 255 Comments The best and easiestchicken ever,baked to crisp-tender perfection along with the most amazingsweet garlic sauce! So Ive been on a major chicken-thigh-kick lately. Its weird because I never even thought I liked chicken thighs until I used it in this slow cooker honey sesame chicken . From there, I was hooked.But then I used bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs for the very first time in this pan roasted lemon chicken and I was in heaven. From the honey mustard chicken to the chicken and mushroom skillet , Im just loving the whole sear-first-then-roast method since it makes the most crisp-tender chicken thighs ever. Its unbelievably juicy and yet you still have that amazing crust on top too. And this sweet brown sugar, garlicky crust is to die for. I seriously wanted to guzzle it down. Or triple the sauce so I can serve it over everything and anything. Im actually bummed that I didnt because there was absolutely no sauce leftover here. I licked the plate clean and a single drop wasnt left at all! Continue reading >>

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

It's perfect if you have diabetes or try to avoid sugar. Want to enjoy the finger-licking goodness of BBQ chicken, but not a fan of all that sugar in your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce? This sweet and zesty condiment makes almost any food better, but it’s also pretty sweet, and not in a good way. Some popular brands have more than 15 grams of sugar per serving! That means you may unknowingly consume way more sugar than you intended—and during a savory dinner, not even for dessert! (Here are more sneaky condiments to watch out for.) If you’re treating insulin resistance or following a diabetic diet, the sugar in BBQ sauce is something you need to pay attention to, since it can cause an unexpected blood sugar spike you might not be prepared for. In this episode of Diabetes Bites, nutritionist Fiorella DiCarlo, RD, whips up a diabetes-friendly BBQ chicken that uses a low-carb, homemade BBQ sauce that imitates the traditional grilling favorite with way less sugar. But actually, you won’t even need a grill: Fiorella makes this in a slow cooker, so you can enjoy this recipe all year round. This low-sugar BBQ chicken recipe uses dark meat like drumsticks or thighs since these are juicier. Although the chicken breast is usually recommended because it’s lower in fat, dark meat has tons of protein along with iron and vitamin B12. For people managing diabetes, increasing protein intake is beneficial since it helps you stay full while you’re cutting back on carbs. (Here are more foods nutritionists recommend to treat diabetes.) That said, you can totally swap in chicken breast if that’s your jam. Then round out your plate with some seasonal grilled vegetables, and you’ve got a perfect diabetes-friendly dinner.
