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 >>

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.

Perfect Roast Chicken

Perfect Roast Chicken

Cooking Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes to 1 hour, 30 minutes head garlic, separated into cloves, skins left on Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste Preheat the oven to 475F. Rinse the chicken inside and out, and pat dry. In a bowl, combine the apples, onion, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper, and 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the onion-herb mixture. (You may not need all of the stuffing.) Use twine to tie the chicken legs together and bind the wings to the body of the chicken. Rub the outside of the chicken on both sides with the remaining olive oil, and sprinkle with additional salt and pepper. Coat a roasting pan with cooking spray, and place the chicken, breast side down, in the pan. Roast uncovered for 45 minutes. If desired, use a roasting rack coated with cooking spray. Turn the chicken on its back, and roast for 30 to 40 minutes more, or until the chicken juices run clear. The legs should move easily. The internal temperature should read 180F, and the skin should be golden brown. Remove the chicken from the oven. Let it rest on a platter, loosely covered, for 20 minutes to allow the juices to settle and to make carving easier. Remove the twine before carving. Discard the stuffing (used only for flavoring) and the skin before serving. NOTE: Leftover cooked chicken can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

6 chicken breasts, 6 ounces, each, bone in, fat and skin removed Prepare the coals in the barbecue or light the grill (if you're going to grill this right away). To make the BBQ sauce: place the tomato puree in a deep sauce pan. Add the onion and simmer slowly, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and add the mustard, lemon juice, sugar substitute, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce (if using), all-spice, ginger, and water. Simmer slowly for about 10 minutes until the sauce thickens. This makes about 2 cups which can be frozen, refrigerated for up to 4 days, or served warm immediately. (You can make the recipe ahead to this point and then let the sauce sit overnight in the refrigerator in order to intensify the flavor.) When ready to grill, lightly coat the chicken breasts with cooking spray. Pat with freshly ground pepper and them place on the grill, bone side up. Grill, turning frequently, for 20 to 25 minutes. Then, brush both sides with BBQ sauce. Continue to grill until the chicken is no longer pink when cut with a knife. To serve, return the barbecue sauce to the stove and bring to a rapid boil for at least 2 minutes.

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.

Diabetic Main Courses For Summer

The lamb is marinated in a brightly spiced marinade featuring cilantro, onion, lime, garlic, ginger , and garam masala, threaded on skewers, and served over bulgur. If you'd rather not make your own garam masala, look for the spice blend in the ethnic section of large supermarkets or at food specialty shops. Lime does double duty in this recipe, both in the marinade and the dressing. Its tart flavor enhances the grilled beef, the tomatoes, and the honey-kissed dressing. Large, juicy shrimp and succulent scallops keep company with tender onion and zucchini in these spicy-hot grilled kabobs. A brushing sauce of mashed chipotle peppers and cumin provide plenty of fire. Juicy chicken breasts go Southwestern with this salsa bursting with pineapple, chipotle pepper, and lime. Plain yogurt adds the creamy texture to the garlic-lemon dressing, which is tossed with greens and parmesan cheese, then topped with broiled salmon. This chicken recipe has all the best ingredients of Italy -- black olives, capers, garlic, fresh basil, red wine, olive oil, and tomatoes. Perfect for a meal on a hot day. This flavorful broiled fish dish has only 123 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Packed with B vitamins, protein, and vitamin C, this summer salad packs a nutritional punch. The sprightly marriage of lemon and dill is a match made in heaven, and three certainly isn't a crowd when sweet pink shrimp are added to the mix. The flavors of asparagus and shrimp flourish with the addition of a balsamic vinaigrette. This salad has the makings of an elegant meal and deserves to be included on a special celebration menu.

Healthy Diabetic Meals Although the management approach and medications for diabetes vary depending on the type of diabetes, age, health status, and lifestyle factors–diet is always a key factor. The good news is that there are foods you can add to your diet that will help control diabetes. Our collection of healthy diabetic main dishes offer low-carb, low-fat, low-sugar, and low-sodium options that are flavorful and satisfying down to the last bite. First up is our Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa. View Recipe: Cedar Plank-Grilled Salmon with Avocado-Orange Salsa Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Depending on the season, you may want to consider substituting thin, blanched, fresh asparagus for the sugar snap peas. You can’t go wrong with either application. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is essential to the flavor of this salad. The bottled juice just doesn’t compare. Microwave lemons for about 30 seconds before squeezing them; they’ll yield more juice. View Recipe: Grilled Chicken and Lemon Salad Skillet Pork and Warm Pineapple Salsa Pineapple is a sweet foil for the fiery jalapeño. Either fresh or canned pineapple chunks work well in this recipe. If you like a spicier kick, remember that smaller jalapeño peppers are typically hotter than the larger ones. To complete the meal, serve with rice and steamed snow peas.

Chicken And Broccoli

Chicken And Broccoli

In my third pregnancy I developed gestational diabetes. My diagnosis came just prior to Easter, and I was crest-fallen that I would need to avoid Easter chocolates and the accompanying feasting. This, as well as having to learn all about the dos and don’ts of diabetes and overhauling my entire diet left me feeling depressed for a number of weeks. We were in the throws of renovating our house, and with 3 other children in my care I didn’t have time for this! I learnt that the biggest perpetrators of blood sugar spikes weren’t actually ‘sugary’ foods like lollies and chocolates, but carbohydrate-rich foods like hot chips, pizza or burgers. While this meant I could indulge in some Easter chocolates, it also meant that take-away dinners or convenience meals would have to go. This was another frustrating point for me because I was already time-poor and now I needed to spend extra time preparing food, and could never have the night off and serve fish and chips for dinner instead. However, after a couple of weeks of ‘torture’ I started feeling better than I had ever felt in my whole life. Despite the fact I was heavily pregnant, I felt energetic and had actually lost 11 pounds (5kgs). After losing this initial weight I didn’t gain any further weight for the remainder of my pregnancy. This left me feeling comparatively light and and grateful for my diet overhaul. Thankfully, I was declared free from diabetes after baby was born, but I have transferred many of the diabetes-diet practices to my regular eating habits. This Chicken Divan recipe is perfect for my post-pregnancy eating plan. With equal portions of protein and vegetables, it is low in carbs and won’t leave you feeling heavy after eating. It’s not exactly low-fat, but if you are diabetic or want to Continue reading >>
