Apricot Chicken Sandwich
  • 1 medium chicken breast

  • 1 slice of red onion, rings separated

  • 6 fresh sage leaves

  • 1 tsp. butter

  • 1 tsp. canola oil

  • 1 TBL mayonnaise

  • 1 TBL sugar free apricot preserves

  • 1/3 cup arugula

  • 1 slice provolone cheese, halved

  1. Mix mayonnaise and apricot preserves. Set aside.

  2. Grill the chicken breast with salt and pepper, spraying the grill so the breast doesn't stick. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side over medium heat. When cooked all the way through, remove the chicken breast and cut in half, lengthwise.

  3. While the chicken is cooking, in a small skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Fry sage leaves in the skillet until they crisp up. Remove them and place on a paper towel.

  4. On the bottom half of the chicken breast, spread the apricot mayo spread. Next layer on the sage leaves, provolone cheese, red onion and arugula. Place the other half of the chicken breast on top and enjoy.

looks and sounds delicious so I will try it due to the fact that now my husband has been diagnosed as a diabetic as well

This sounds delicious, but on the NF is that a typo on the sodium? There is less sodium in beef jerky and bullion cube combined!

unless you are adding a bunch of salt to this recipe there is no way there is over 300 mg of salt in this recipe so i think the nutritional facts for this recipe is off a bit.

That is more salt than 2 double cheeseburger at Mcdonalds!! where does it come from? or is that a mistake? and white bread not good should be multi-grain or brown.

Not all of us have the same diabetic meal plan. I am not turned off by the fat or calories. I care about carbs, and this gets me exactly where I need to be. Low carb, high flavor. It's beautiful, it's tasty, and it's bread-less. The community member who posted this has done well by me.

Over half the calories in this are fat calories. Not a good idea. When you want to grill the sage leaves, you don't have to use 2 tsp of fat. Just sprintz the pan and cook away. Also, no need for mayo to be mixed with sugar-free apricot preserves. Just use the sugar-free preservers for the sweet taste without the mayo.The 35 grams of fat yield 315 calories in fat which is 51% of the calories in this recipe. There's about 25 fat calories in the chicken breast so you can't do much about that and it is low enough. But adding all the fat just to cook a few sage leaves and add more fat flavor to the nicely sweet sugar-free apricot preserves is uncalled for. Makes me wonder if anyone on this site truly understands the diabetic diet plan.
