Comfort Food For A Diabetic- Recipe: Chicken Parmesan

Comfort Food For A Diabetic- Recipe: Chicken Parmesan

Comfort food for a Diabetic- Recipe: Chicken Parmesan By Ward Alper in Blog: Notes & Recipes From THE DECADENT DIABETIC On September 11, 2013 Does missing some of the foods you used to enjoy make you sad? Good news. You don't have to give them up all together. Just modify them to work for a Diabetic Compatible, low carb diet. Take Chicken Parmesan for example. The chicken is not a problem, the cheese is not a problem, and the sauce can be managed in a number of different ways. If it's the breading you're trying to avoid that is holding you back, consider this: how much do you really taste it anyway? Isnt it the gooey, cheesy, tomato flavorwhat makes this dish? I was served Chicken Parmesan years ago over a bed of well-seasoned wilted spinach (And yes I know the dish is traditionaly served over a bed of pasta. The reason for that is simple economics. Pasta costs less than chicken).The healthier version I ate was as good as the original, just different. If you'd rather not forgo tradition, try substituting spaghetti squash for regular spaghetti. You still get a plate full of memories. The only difference is it's diabetic compatible so a lot healthier now. Your soul and your tastebuds will thank you. And this relatively low carbohydrate serving should not raise your readings unless you are hypersensitive to any amount of carbohydrates. Note: The only thing missing from this recipe is the breading which is why it is so low in carbohydrates. The flavors and textures are exactly what you remembered. It is much faster to prepare. *You can use a commercial tomato sauce or diced San Marzanno tomatoes drained and mixed with garlic, minced onion, parsley, basil and oregano, or use roasted tomatoes for the sauce. Better yettry all the possibilities. Salt and pepper to taste (and y Continue reading >>

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan [video]

Low Carb Chicken Parmesan [video]

Everyone loves Chicken Parmesan! Whether its on a sub or on a plate of spaghetti, its delicious in every way! Unfortunately for us keto-ers, an order or chicken parm from our local pizzeria or Italian restaurant usually means trouble. From the sub or spaghetti to the breading and even the tomato sauce, youll find carbs all over this dish. The hidden carbs in the breading and tomato sauce are what we need to watch out for.Tomatoes are fruits that are high in sugar (not as high as, say, bananas, but nevertheless high). Their sauces are often full of added sugar as well, sometimes upwards of 10 grams of carbs per 1/4 cup, depending on the brand. Ketchup alone is usually cut out of a low carb diet because of all the sugar that it can add to meals. A tablespoon of ketchup alone has 5 grams of carbs ! We love using Raos Homemade Marinara Sauce in most of our Italian/pizza/tomato sauce dishes. Its low in sugar, has real, pronounceable ingredients and tastes great. It is on the expensive side, but weve found it more affordable to buy in bulk at BJs! Now onto the breading! Traditional chicken parm is covered in a crispy outer breading. This alone can add 20-30 grams of carbs to your day, and thats not including the pasta or bread that may come with it! Weve got a way to fix that Weve experimented in the past with ways of breading chicken and fish to add a bit of different texture to it. Weve used almond flour, coconut flour, Parmesan cheese and other forms of crumbs to achieve the texture of traditional breading. They were all close but had their downfalls. For example, almond flour peeled right off our baked chicken time and time again. Crushed up pork rinds make for an amazing breading! They add the much needed crunch and texture we were looking for! We figured about a 1/2 oz Continue reading >>

Grilled Chicken Parmesan

Grilled Chicken Parmesan

(4 oz.) boneless, skinless chicken breasts Coat a grill rack from an outdoor gas grill with cooking spray and set it 6 inches from the heat source. Preheat the grill to medium high. To butterfly the chicken breasts, lay each breast on a cutting board and use a knife held parallel to the cutting board. Make a cut down the length of one long side of the breast and continue slicing the breast into two thin halves across the width. Do not cut completely through the other edge. Open the breast and layer a slice of fresh tomato, a sun-dried tomato half, Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses, and 2 basil leaves. Secure the chicken around the filling with 1 to 2 toothpicks. Sprinkle the outside of each breast with salt and pepper. Spray each breast lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Put the chicken breasts on the grill, and grill for about 15 to 17 minutes or until cooked through, turning the breasts occasionally so that they cook evenly. Continue reading >>

Cut each chicken breast in half on the diagonal to make 4 roughly equal portions. Place between pieces of plastic wrap and pound with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a heavy saucepan to an even -inch thickness. Sprinkle the chicken with teaspoon pepper. Combine breadcrumbs. Parmesan and 1 tablespoon oil in a small bowl; set aside. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken and cook until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Reduce the heat to medium and repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and chicken. Transfer the chicken to the plate. Add onion and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Pour in crushed tomatoes; add Italian seasoning, salt and the remaining teaspoon pepper. Return the pan to medium heat and cook, stirring, until the onions are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pan. Turn to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle about cup of mozzarella cheese over each piece of chicken, then top with the reserved breadcrumb mixture. Broil until the cheese is melted, about 1 minute. (Watch carefully to prevent burning.) Serve the chicken with the sauce, sprinkled with basil (or parsley). Tip: To make coarse dry breadcrumbs, spread crumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 250F until dry, 10 to 15 minutes. One slice of bread makes about cup fresh breadcrumbs or about cup dry breadcrumbs. For store-bought coarse dry breadcrumbs we like Ian's brand, labeled Panko breadcrumbs. Find them at well-stocked supermarkets.

Healthy Chicken Parmesan

Healthy Chicken Parmesan

1 lbs. chicken cutlets (or cut chicken breasts in half and pound them to an even thickness) cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 2 Tbsp. fresh basil and sage leaves, minced Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the flour and salt in a shallow dish, and put the egg(s) and the bread crumbs or panko in 2 separate shallow dishes. Coat each chicken cutlet lightly with the flour, then the egg, then the bread crumbs, and lay them on the baking sheet. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the cheeses. (Start the grits and the kale now, if you are serving them.) Remove the chicken from the oven, flip each cutlet over, and top each one with 1 Tbsp. of the sauce, spreading it to the edges, and a sprinkling of the fresh herbs and the cheese (make sure to use up all of the herbs and cheese). Return the chicken to the oven for 6 8 more minutes until it is cooked through and the cheese is melted. Do Ahead or Delegate: Put the ingredients for breading the chicken in separate bowls (and refrigerate the eggs), cut and pound chicken breasts and grate Parmesan cheese, if needed. Scramble Flavor Booster: Use aged Parmesan such as Parmigiano-Reggiano and add a little black or red pepper to the bread crumb mixture. Use a spoonful of pesto in addition to or instead of the herbs. Tip: You can also serve the chicken over angel hair noodles or on whole wheat buns topped with extra marinara sauce. Side Dish suggestion: Trim the stems of 1 lb. of Brussels sprouts a little and peel off any tough outer leaves. If the sprouts are large, cut them in half from top to bottom. Toss the sprouts with 1 2 Tbsp. olive oil and tsp. kosher salt and roast them in the oven for 25 30 minutes at 400 degrees, tossing them occasionally, until they are browned and Continue reading >>

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Skillet Chicken Parmesan

Note: Recipe courtesy of Eat What You Love: More Than 300 Incredible Recipes Low in Sugar, Fat and Calories (Running Press 2010) Although my boys love to order Chicken Parmesan when we dine out, the health content is always a concern -especially since it usually arrives thickly breaded, deeply fried, smothered in cheese, and served on a mountain of spaghetti! Heres a terrific easy stove-top recipe thats filled with all of the same great flavors but none of the excess fat and carbs. 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound) 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (3 ounces) Food Exchanges:4 Lean Meat, 1 Medium Fat Meat, 2 Vegetable, 1 Fat, 1/2 Starch 1. In a shallow bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and garlic salt. In another shallow bowl, beat the egg until frothy. 2. Wrap the chicken breasts in plastic wrap and place on a cutting board. Gently pound each breast with a mallet to an even thickness (about 1/2-inch). Dip each chicken breast into the beaten egg to coat, and then roll in the breadcrumb mixture. 3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is well browned and just cooked through. 4. Spoon the marinara sauce evenly on top of the chicken, and sprinkle the mozzarella on top. Cover the pan, reduce heat to low and cook for 3 more minutes, or until the cheese melts. Dare to Compare: A Chicken Parmesan dinner plate (or should I say platter), at a typical Italian restaurant can serve up over 2000 calories, 125 grams of fat, 100 grams of carbohydrate and 4000 mg of sodium. Serve this with a serving of whole grain blend pasta and a great green salad for a healthy dinner everyone can enjoy. Your email address will not be publ Continue reading >>
