WELCOME TO DIABETIC ENJOYING FOOD

I have chosen this name for this blog because it truly states my story. I am a type II diabetic who most certainly enjoys food. When I was diagnosed with diabetes several years ago, my blood sugar level was over 400. With some oral medications, a lot of research and some trial and error, I have found that unlike my ancestors I truly can continue to enjoy food. I hope this blog will help you to also enjoy food and be healthy. Some recipes are my originals and some I have collected.

PARMESAN CHICKEN BREASTS

4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 cup butter*, melted
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Microwave butter until melted in a shallow microwave-safe bowl.

Combine the bread crumbs and cheese in a second bowl.

Dip the chicken breasts in the melted butter then lightly coat on both sides with the breading.

Place chicken on a baking pan with sides or on a baking dish that has been very lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through.

*For a healthier dish substitute olive oil, the flavored ones are especially good substitutes for butter.
