Braised Chicken, Tomato and Bacon


All of my diabetic recipes are truly diabetic friendly. Too many recipes claim to be diabetic friendly, instead they are big food, big pharma and medical industry friendly.  Not mine. :)

  • low carb, ‘real food’ recipes
  • gluten, grain free recipes avoiding added sugars and vegetable oils

 

Of course, the diabetes friendly recipes on this site also feature ‘no sugar added’ foods. I do not use sweeteners of any kind.

Chicken, Tomato and Bacon… so good!

 

Diabetic Friendly Links

Before we get to the … ‘meat’ of the post, let me share my truly diabetic friendly food links.

3. A Sample Menu

 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of chicken breast
  • 8 oz of bacon – you can always add more. :)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 Roma Tomato
  • 1/4 of medium onion

 

  • 1/4 cup of red wine (optional – but nothing adds flavor to a dish like a little wine)

 

Steps

1. Fry bacon and cut or chop it up into bite sized pieces.   Note: I had to cook two batches, about 1 1/2 lbs total.  I ate the first batch while I was preparing this meal.  … just a heads up, if you are like me… don’t fix this meal when you are hungry or … make extra bacon. :)

This is the bacon on the cutting board …

2.  After the bacon, cook the chicken in the bacon juice. 

As the chicken cooks, I slice it into bite sized pieces.  This allows the flavor of the bacon and spices to coat the small pieces … and adds more flavor per bite.

3.  Chop up the garlic, tomato and onion while the chicken in braising in the bacon fat.

4) The ‘veggies’ can be added at any time. I have the patience the size of a gnat  AND I like my veggies ‘lightly cooked’.  Therefore I added the veggies to the skillet of chicken for the final 5 minutes of cooking.

Once the chicken was done I removed from the skillet.  Then I added a little wine to skillet, just enough to allow me to gently scrape the carmelized chicken meat that may have stuck to the bottom of the skillet.   The veggies cooked for just a few more minutes and then I added the chicken back in to the skillet.

Here’s another look at the finished product.

It is truly diabetic friendly! … not American Diabetes Association, Monsanto, Big Food, Big Pharma friendly.
