Grilled Chicken with Cherry Apple Chutney
Brining is the secret to marvelously tender and delicious chicken pieces. Grill them up and serve with a sweet and tangy chutney made from cherries and tart apples.
1/4 cup Splenda® Sugar Blend
1/2 cup kosher salt
1 cup hot tap water
3 cups cold water
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
Cherry Apple Chutney:
1 cup pitted tart cherries (thawed, if frozen)
1/2 Granny Smith apple, unpeeled, cored, and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped red onions
1/4 cup Splenda® Brown Sugar Blend
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 tablespoon brewed strong coffee
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 grated peel of 1/2 lemon
1/3 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons apple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 – For Chicken: Combine Splenda® Sugar Blend, salt, and hot water in 1-gallon zipper-lock plastic bag and shake to dissolve Splenda® Sugar Blend and salt. Add cold water and chicken. Press air out of bag, seal, and refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
2 – For Cherry Apple Chutney: In medium steel saucepan, combine tart cherries, apples, onions, Splenda® Brown Sugar Blend, dried cherries, coffee, vinegar, lemon peel, and cayenne. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer gently 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft and most of liquid evaporates. Remove from heat and stir in juice concentrate and mint. Set aside.
3 – Remove chicken from brine and discard brine. Refrigerate chicken until ready to serve (up to 1 day). Pat chicken dry with paper towels and sprinkle all over with pepper. Let rest at room temperature 20 minutes.
4 – Heat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate and coat with oil.
5 – Put chicken on grill, cover, and cook 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear (about 170°F / 80°C on an instant-read thermometer). Brush with oil during last 5 minutes. Serve with chutney.
Makes 8 servings.

From the Diabetic Living Online website its the Top 25 Power Foods for Diabetes. Find out what foods are considered the power foods to good health! It’s all on the Diabetic Living Online website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
The best foods for diabetes are most often whole foods that are not processed, such as fruits and vegetables. Including these extra-healthy power foods in your diet will help you meet your nutritional needs as well as lower your risk of diabetes complications such as heart disease. Of course, the foods on this list shouldn’t be the only foods you eat, but incorporating some or all into your diabetes meal plan will help improve your overall health.
The Best Foods for Diabetes
If you already follow a healthful meal plan filled with whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies, and lean protein, congratulations! You’re on your way to a long, healthy life and are taking a major step in controlling your weight and blood sugar levels. Plus, you’re probably already eating a bunch of the foods on this list.
For those who are taking the baby-steps approach to eating better, this list is even more helpful. Not only are these power foods high in fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals, they’re also familiar and easy to find. That means you don’t have to hunt down any exotic ingredients or shop at specialty grocery stores to find foods that will help you get on track with a healthful meal plan.

The professor leading the study explained that not all antioxidants are created equal, and that a particular type of antioxidant in apples had a profound effect on lowering LDLs, a contributor to heart disease. The study was funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Apple Association, among other supporters……
Cooked or raw, carrots are a healthy addition to any meal plan. While cooked carrots have the rich texture of starchy vegetables, such as potatoes, they are classified as nonstarchy veggies because they don’t contain a lot of carbohydrate. A 1-cup serving of raw carrots has about 5 grams of carb, as does a 1/2-cup cooked serving. According to the American Diabetes Association, five baby carrots are considered a “free food” and do not need to be counted in a meal plan……..
