Lemon Rosemary Chicken Recipe – Healthy Baked Lemon Chicken

 In Diabetes, featured, Recipe

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.

    Flour…? What kind…surely not ordinary flour. Looks nice…but butter I never use, either. Wine…? I do not drink wine or spirits with my type 2 diabetes. I can cook the chicken without the sauce. Sorry, Charlie….quite enjoyed your other recipes.

      I did use regular flour as a thickener. You don’t have to use the butter or the regular flour. But, I like the consistency of it for a drizzle of sauce. Also, you can substitute the wine with low sodium chicken broth:)
