Diabetic Chicken Recipes

I never realized how many recipes called for ingredients that could potentially cause problems for diabetics.  Thankfully there are numerous diabetic chicken recipes out there to help put a little variety into your diabetic meal recipes collection.

At the time of me writing this post, winter has just finished and we’re waiting for the nice warm summer to start.  One of the things that helped us through the cold winter, and one of my favorite things, chicken noodle soup!  There’s one from my diabetic chicken recipes collection.

Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 3-pound (1.4 kg) whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 large onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and quartered
  • 3 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) crushed dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) crushed dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) freshly ground pepper
  • 1 quart (1 L) canned no-salt, no-fat chicken broth
  • 1 quart (1 L) boiling water
  • 6 ounces (180 g) medium-wide noodles
  • 4 ounces (120 g) button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 pound (240 g) fresh spinach, well washed and large stems removed

Rinse and pat dry chicken. Place in a 5-quart (5 L) or larger crockery slow cooker. Place the onion, carrot, and parsley around chicken pieces. Sprinkle with thyme, marjoram, and pepper. Add chicken broth, cover, and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. When chicken is done, remove from broth and cool for about 10 minutes, until cool enough to handle. Discard the onion, carrot, and parsley. Remove and discard the chicken skin and bones. Shred chicken and set aside. Skim off and discard all surface fat from the broth. If cooking on LOW, change setting to HIGH. Add the boiling water, noodles, and mushrooms. Cook until noodles are almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and continue to cook until noodles and tender and spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Gently stir in shredded chicken and heat through.

Ladle into wide, shallow soup bowls.
