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.

CHICKEN WITH PINEAPPLE AND LEMON

1 can (20-oz) sliced pineapple in its juice
1 garlic clove, pressed
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp dried rosemary, crumbled
3 whole chicken breasts, split
1 tsp salt
1 small lemon, thinly sliced

Preheat broiler.

Drain the pineapple; reserve the juice.  Combine the juice with the garlic, cornstarch, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and rosemary. 

Arrange the chicken, skin side up in a shallow baking dish; sprinkle with the salt.  Broil until browned.

Stir the prepared sauce and pour over the chicken.  Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  Arrange the pineapple and lemon around the chicken and spoon sauce over all.  Bake an additional 5 minutes.

Yield: 6 servings

This dish has the natural sugar of the pineapple and juice.  However, the protein of the chicken gives you a good carb to protein ratio.
