Lemon Herb Barbeque Sauce for Chicken

Submitted By: JEANINEJThis recipe is an awesome alternative to a red barbeque sauce for chicken. It was a neighborhood favorite during summer when I was growing up.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes
Ready In: 30 Minutes
Yields: 8 servings
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Preheat grill for high heat.
In a blender or food processor, blend the oil, lemon juice, onion, salt, thyme, marjoram, and garlic until thick and smooth.
Coat the grill grate with aluminum foil. Poke holes in the foil and spray with cooking spray. Arrange chicken on grate, and cook 15 minutes, turning once and brushing constantly with the sauce, until juices run clear.
Serves 4 to 6
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine
2 tablespoons peanut oil, plus more for cooking
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
Peanut oil, for deep frying
6 tablespoons light soy sauce
6 tablespoons rice vinegar
4 tablespoons Chinese rice wine
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
8 small dried red chilies, stems removed and discarded, pods cut in halves
1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, thinly sliced, and smashed
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 green onions, white parts cut into 1/2-inch pieces, green part cut into thin julienne strips
1/2 cup shelled and skinned raw peanuts, roasted in a 350 degrees F. oven until deep golden brown, about 20 minutes
4 tablespoons cold canned chicken broth plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch, stirred together until the cornstarch dissolves completely
First, prepare the chicken. Thoroughly trim the chicken breast halves. Cut them crosswise into slices 1/4 inch thick. In a nonreactive bowl, whisk the egg whites until slightly frothy. Add the rice wine, 2 tablespoons peanut oil, soy sauce, cornstarch and salt. Stir until thoroughly combined and the cornstarch has dissolved completely. Stir in the chicken pieces, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to several hours. About 45 minutes before serving, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature.
About 20 minutes before serving, in a large wok, heat 2 to 3 inches of peanut oil to a temperature of about 300 degrees F. on a deep-frying thermometer. Stir the chicken pieces in their marinade, then remove them from the marinade, letting excess liquid drip off, and very carefully add them to the hot oil, taking care not to splash. Using long cooking chopsticks or a wooden spoon, stir the chicken gently to separate the slices, and cook only until they turn uniformly white, about 20 seconds. Immediately remove them with a wire skimmer or slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels to drain.
In a small mixing bowl, stir together the sauce ingredients and set aside near the cooktop.
To stir-fry, carefully pour off all but about 4 tablespoons of oil from the wok, wiping the side of the wok with paper towels to eliminate any drips. Return the wok to high heat. As soon as the oil is very hot and fragrant, add the chilies, ginger, garlic and white parts of the green onions. Stir-fry briskly until the chilies turn dark red, 30 to 40 seconds.
Immediately add the chicken and continue stir-frying until the pieces are completely cooked and light golden, 1 to 2 minutes more. Stir in the sauce and cook until it reaches a boil. Add the peanuts, drizzle in the broth-cornstarch mixture, and stir gently until the sauce turns glossy and thick enough to coat the chicken, about 1 minute more.
Transfer the stir-fry to a serving plate and garnish with the strips of green onion. Serve immediately.

Oatmeal Choc Chip Cookies
Ingredients:2 cups rolled oats (not quick-cooking) 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup tahini (see Ingredient note) 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter , cut into pieces 2/3 cup granulated sugar or 1/3 cup Splenda Sugar Blend for Baking 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar 1 each large egg 1 each large egg white 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup chopped walnuts Steps:
1: Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
2: Whisk oats, all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat tahini and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until blended into a paste. Add granulated sugar (or Splenda) and brown sugar; continue beating until well combined-the mixture will still be a little grainy. Beat in egg, then egg white, then vanilla. Stir in the oat mixture with a wooden spoon until just moistened. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
3: With damp hands, roll 1 tablespoon of the batter into a ball, place it on a prepared baking sheet and flatten it until squat, but don't let the sides crack. Continue with the remaining batter, spacing the flattened balls 2 inches apart.
4: Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 16 minutes, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through. Cool on the pans for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Let the pans cool for a few minutes before baking another batch.Nutrition: (Per cookie)Calories - 101Carbohydrates - 13Fat - 5Saturated Fat - 2Monounsaturated Fat - 1Protein - 2Cholesterol - 7Dietary Fiber - 1Potassium - 0Sodium - 45

Stir in mint.
3: Sprinkle drumsticks with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the drumsticks until crispy on all sides and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, about 15 minutes total. Serve the drumsticks with the dipping sauce on the side. Broiler variation: Position oven rack in the upper third of the oven; preheat broiler to high. Prepare sauce (Step 2). Coat a broiler pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle drumsticks with salt and pepper (Step 3), then broil, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, about 15 minutes total.

Diabetic Diet, 1,500 Calorie

If you are both diabetic and overweight, your doctor may recommend a diet that limits your intake to 1,500 calories a day. To keep blood sugar levels under control, a diabetic diet strikes a balance among the carbohydrates, fats, and protein you take in. In addition, a 1,500-calorie diabetic diet restricts calories and fat.
A sample 1,500 calorie diet is listed below. You can exchange or trade one food for another from the same food group. For example, you can choose 1 slice of bread instead of 3/4 cups of dry cereal, or a potato instead of a dinner roll. For other alternatives, see the lists under "Diabetic Exchange Diet."
2 breads or starches, such as 3/4 cup (6 ounces) corn flakes and 1 slice toast
1 fruit, such as 1 small (5-inch) banana or 1/2 of a 9-inch banana
1 milk, such as 1 cup skim or 1 cup 1 percent milk
1 fat, such as 1 tsp. margarine
LUNCH Food Groups
2 ounces meat or protein, such as 2 ounces sliced turkey breast
2 breads or starches, such as 2 slices bread
1 vegetable, such as 1 lettuce leaf and 2 tomato slices
1 fat, such as 1 tsp. regular mayonnaise or 2 tsp. low-fat mayonnaise
1 milk, such as 1 cup (8 ounces) skim or 1 cup 1 percent milk
1 vegetable, such as 1 cup carrot sticks
1 fat, such as 2 Tbs. fat-free salad dressing (can use with carrot sticks)
DINNER Food Groups
3 ounces meat or protein, such as 3 ounces lean roast beef
2 starches, such as one 3-inch baked potato and 1 medium (2-1/2 inch) dinner roll
1 fat, such as 1 tsp. margarine
2 vegetables, such as 1 cup (8 ounces) cooked mixed vegetables
1 fruit, such as 1-1/4 cups fresh strawberries
1 bread, such as three 2-1/2 inch square graham crackers
1 meat or meat substitute, such as 1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese

DIRECTIONS: Place the onion, chili beans, black beans, corn, tomato sauce, beer, and diced tomatoes in a slow cooker. Add taco seasoning and stir to blend. Lay chicken breasts on top of the mixture pressing down slightly until just covered by the other ingredients. Set slow cooker for low heat, cover, and cook for 5 hours. Remove chicken breasts from the soup, and allow to cool long enough to be handled. Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup, and continue cooking for 2 hours. Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips if desired.
**One thing I do is pick up one of those roasted chickens from the deli then just cut the meat off that. It's easy and it gives it some extra flavor.
