Hi everyone hope your all well? On Friday it will be a year since I was diagnosed with diabetes, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone! Before my diagnosis a go to meal for us would have been hunters chicken. We’ve not had it since because of the high sugar/carb content. I’m really missing it so I was wondering if anyone had a recipe that was low sugar/carb that I could try

Hello @bakebeans and Happy 'D' Anniversary.
You certainly look to have done really well in getting your Diabetes under control.
What are the main things that have worked well for you?

Regarding Hunter's Chicken, I found the recipe below although haven't actually tried it yet, but it looks quite yummy.

Hunter’s Style Chicken

2 Chicken Breasts
3 strips of bacon, sliced
2 tbls “seasoning blend” – e.g garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper, but use any blend you like
1/3 cup tomato puree

Coat the chicken breast in the seasoning blend. In an oven proof pan, fry the bacon strips until they release their fat but aren’t yet crispy. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Brown chicken for a couple minutes per side. Add tomato puree and sprinkle with bacon. Put into a 350F oven and cook until internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165F.

Thanks for the recipe I’m going to give it a go in the week.
The main things that have worked for me is exercise. I’ve lost just over 4 stone now and am quite conscious about what food I eat, though I still have days where I eat the wrong things especially now with everything going on. I’ll be happier about it all when I can go for my next HbA1c and see where I’m at.
Our usual hunters sauce was from Tesco’s and looking at the label I thought it was a bit high for 1/4 of a jar (I love it and would easily eat half! ) so wondered if I could make a more friendly one

4 stn weight loss is an amazing result @bakebeans, and I'm sure you will be seeing many benefits from that.
It is hard to keep on track in these difficult times, but you sound seem very aware of what is good to do, so I'm sure that will keep your BG under control.
I hope the recipe works well, and that you enjoy the Hunter's chicken, it looks tasty and I will try it out soon as well.
