  • olive oil (extra-virgin)
    2 tbsp
  • yellow onion (small, diced)
  • fresh Brussels sprouts (trimmed and halved)
    1 1/2 lbs
  • chicken breasts (cut into bite-size pieces)
    1 lbs
  • cremini (baby bella) mushrooms (thinly sliced)
    8 oz
  • Italian seasoning
    1 tsp
  • salt
    1/2 tsp

    1/4 tsp
  • heavy cream
    1 oz
  • mozzarella cheese (shredded)
    1/2 cup
  • Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
    1/4 cup


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Heat a large oven-proof skillet to medium heat and add olive oil. Add onion, Brussels, chicken, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and chicken is almost cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and drizzle with heavy cream and top with cheeses.

  4. Place the skillet in the oven and bake until the cheese bubbles, 10-15 minutes

    A suggested starch on the side would have been helpful to make a meal not just for diabetics but for the whole family. Double the recipe, the current portions are a bit small for a meal that you can pretty much eat as much as you want without running your sugar up.

    This was surprisingly great! Definitely be liberal with the seasonings though—I added some red pepper flakes and Cajun seasoning for color and heat. I bulked up the veggie count with 12 oz of chopped fresh green beans, and it was really nice. Also don’t be afraid to use half and half instead of heavy cream if that’s what you have on hand. It worked just fine!

    Would taste better with broccoli instead and maybe even bacon added.
