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. Everyone reacts different to various foods. Check your blood sugar readings so you will know whether or not a recipe works for you! And feel free to take a recipe and adjust it to suit your needs.

4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves 

1 pkg (1.4-oz) French Onion Soup Mix
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup mayonnaise

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

But the soup mix and bread crumbs in a gallon size zip-top plastic bag. Mix together well.

Brush the chicken breasts with the mayonnaise on all sides. Place chicken in the zip-top bag, one piece at a time, and shake bag to coat well. Arrange the chicken pieces on a rack in a broiler pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until juices run clear and chicken is tender.
