This recipe was created for my neighbor after she had surgery. She said she’d love lemon chicken and I knew I needed to come up with a healthy recipe that was also moist and delicious. This healthy recipe is perfect for diabetes, it’s low carb of course. Serve it with any vegetables you like.
A couple notes:
You don’t have to use butter & flour (if you are dairy & gluten free, skip this step)
The alcohol in the wine cooks off, but you can substitute low sodium chicken broth if you’d rather not use wine.
I made it with roasted lemon veggies, I roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts on a separate sheet pan.
