Way Healthier Feta Chicken Salad

I call this feta chicken salad “way healthier” because it uses very little mayonnaise and instead adds creaminess and tang from sour cream and feta cheese. The dill adds a nice herby touch along with celery and red bell pepper for the crunch you’d also expect from a chicken salad. This has become a new go-to favorite for lunches, and is especially easy to throw together when...

Cobb Salad

This incredible Cobb salad is the second part of a “make once have twice” meal–this time using just the marinated, grilled chicken from my grilled basil chicken recipe previously posted. We’ve also used the meat from grilled chicken fajitas when we last had them, only we skipped the chili powder for the batch we knew we’d be repurposing for the Cobb. If you’re used to other...

Summer Grilled Basil Chicken

This summer grilled basil chicken is so incredibly fresh tasting that it makes up for the steps involved.

And the spare dressing makes for a yummy addition to a lunch sandwich or Caprese salad. I’ll...

The sauce is flavorful enough to stand up to any other veggie substitutions you may decide to try, so feel free to experiment. Keep it in your...

Roasted Chicken Provence with Herbed Vegetables

This roasted chicken provence with herbed vegetables makes for a wonderful dinner for a special occasion, although it doesn’t require much fuss. Although it’s a hearty dish for a winter’s night you can also enjoy it when you’re feeling European, as chicken provence has its roots in French cuisine. To make it friendly for readers with prediabetes or diabetes I use a whole...

Creamy Artichoke Chicken

This creamy artichoke chicken with mushrooms is a recipe I’ve adapted from a diabetes cookbook. Now, I don’t usually like such recipes as, in my opinion, they are still surprisingly hefty on the carbs. This one is an exception, although I’ve still trimmed the flour thickener even more. Unlike my other low-starch recipes you actually don’t need to bake the chicken ahead of...
