Delicious Diabetic Recipes

Diabetic Recipes

 Delicious and practical diabetic recipes for everyone. Here I’ve decided to list some very delicious diabetic recipes for those who are interested. Most meals that are served in restaurants are not catered towards a diabetic which means that someone with diabetes has to be very specific to what he or she eats.

CHICKEN BREASTS WITH CARROT AND ZUCCHINI

2 small (whole) skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1 c. carrots, shredded (about 2 sm.)

1 c. zucchini, shredded (about 1 med.)

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. poultry seasoning

1 envelope chicken-flavored bouillon

1/4 c. water

In medium bowl, combine carrots, zucchini, salt and poultry seasoning. Spoon about 1/2 cup mixture into each pocket (each breast should open similar to a butterfly); secure with toothpicks. In place chicken in a Med size skillet, sprinkle with bouillon. Add water to skillet and cook over medium high heat, heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer about 40 minutes or until chicken is fork tender. Remove toothpicks. Makes 4 servings, 180 calories per serving.

Very Tasty.

GRILLED TURKEY TENDERLOIN

1/4 c. low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 c. sherry wine or apple juice

1/8 tsp. black pepper

2 tbsp. crushed onion

1 lb. uncooked turkey tenderloin, 3/4 to 1 inch thick

1/4 c. peanut oil

2 tbsp. lemon juice

1/8 tsp. garlic salt

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

In a shallow pan, blend all marinade ingredients together. Add turkey, turning to coat both sides. Cover; marinate in refrigerator several hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Grill the tenderloins over hot coals, 8-10 minutes per side, depending on the thickness. Tenderloins are done when there is no pink in the center - do not over cook. Serve in 1/4 inch thick slices in toasted buns. Yields 4 servings.

CHOCOLATE CAKE

1/4 c. sifted all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

3 tbsp. cocoa

1/4 c. cold coffee

1 tbsp. sugar substitute

1 egg

1 tbsp. salad oil

1/4 c. cold water

1 tsp. vanilla

Sift flour, baking powder, soda, and salt together. Blend cocoa and coffee. Beat egg and all sugar substitute, water, salad oil, and vanilla and stir into dry ingredients, mixing only until smooth. Stir in cocoa and coffee mixture. Line one 8 inch round layer cake pan with wax paper and grease with 1/8 teaspoon butter. Pour batter into pan, cover pan with foil and place in shallow pan of water. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove from pan onto cake rack and cool. Cut layer in half crosswise to make half of a two layer cake. One serving = 1 fruit and 1 fat exchange.

I found this one to be quite delicious.

DIABETIC PEACH OR STRAWBERRY JAM

1 qt. peeled peaches or 1 qt. cleaned strawberries

2 tbsp. lemon juice

3 tsp. artificial sweetener

1 box powdered pectin

Crush peaches or strawberries in saucepan. Stir in lemon juice, pectin and sweetener. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Continue to stir 2 minutes. Pour into sterilized half-pint jars. Cool well. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2 1/2 half-pints.

Eating right and feeling great are two important factors of living healthy. Diabetics have this concern with every meal that is consumed. Diabetic recipes create delicious foods that can be enjoyed by everyone. Enjoy a good healthy home cooked delicious meal more often than not.
