I'm not sure how Insulin shots work...does this free you up to eat how you like?
(Thus the KFC?)

I have type 2 diabetes most likely brought on from years of medication or at least that's what my doctors think . I'm 5' 11" and weigh 165 lbs and I do exercise . Once you have diabetes diet is a key part of keeping it in control . If diet and exercise isn't enough then you need medicine . I did OK for many years on metformin pills and a diet . I try hard to eat right but after a few days of that I slip back to bad habits .

Diabetes has a tendency to get worse over time even with treatment so I knew this day would come .

Man that's hardcore.

I personally prefer Church's, but KFC is always good for a sweet Urban Myth...remember the headless chickens they were raising?

BTW, has anyone tried the new Church's Wild Wings, they are to die for. But dont get the Boneless, the bone-in is far better. And the Sweet and Spicy sauce is the best....mmm, i wished I could bathe in a vat of Churchs wings and sweet n spicy sauce.

I don't go to fast food fried chicken places.  If I want fried chicken I just pick up a couple breast pieces from the deli counter at my supermarket.  And I even have both a KFC and Church's within five blocks walking distance.

There have been times in my life where I probably only ate fried chicken once a year, though it's been more frequent lately.  Assuredly less than you other girls, however!  Plus obtaining it at the supermarket cuts out those fat laden side dishes.

Hi JG
I'm just curious, did your Doc put you straight onto Insulin injections or did he prescribe Meds first?

I agree with Miss P..KFC is nasty stuff.

Hi Jan ... I have been on metformin pills for about 5 years or so . My blood sugar was in perfect control until about 8 months ago and because I have been feeling so poor he put me on the insulin yesterday .

I fry my chicken in Louisiana New Orleans style fish fry batter that I buy at the supermarket . Its easy , just dip in egg and into the prepackaged batter and it comes out golden brown and Yummy .

This is how I make mine as well.  I add a little flour though because it's a bit too cornmealy for my taste.  It is very good though.  My daughters like chicken breast cut in strips made this way.

It's been an entire decade since I cooked fried chicken at home.

Now, if anyone wants my recipe for 40-garlic roasted chicken just speak up.

I love garlic but 40 garlic makes it sound like you're using 40 cloves...

Because you do and it's very good.  You put the cloves in whole and they get deliciously brown (roasted).  I like to take the cloves, once everything is done, and spread on a piece of toasted Frenchbread.

With my recipe after roasting and the chicken is resting, you puree the roasted garlic and then slowly whisk in cold butter 1 tablespoon at a time and it makes a sauce.

Now that sounds good.  I am going to definitely try this next time I make it.  I came across the recipe one day while online.  The name of course is what sparked my interest and it's my guess the recipe I have would be pretty generic.

OK, I located my recipe -- I actually adapted one for 40-garlic roasted duck from the legendary Silver Palate Cookbook (1982)

Now, I will assume you can roast a chicken properly with a proper chopped mirepoix, and that you don't peel cloves of garlic when you roast them.  So to make this sauce you want 1/2 of the leftover roasting broth (if you have more reduce it) as a base, then remove the roasted garlic and run through a food mill (if you don't own one they're really cheap).  The broth should be in a saucepan, and add 1 tbs. creme de cassis and 2 tbs. sherry vinegar, bring to a boil and reduce by 1/3, then whisk in the pureed garlic and remove from heat.  Then take 8 tbs. of chilled butter and whisk 1 tbs. at a time into the garlic/broth mixture, adding one tablespoon after the other before the previous one is fully absorbed.  Sauce will look creamy and thicken slightly.  Cover and set in a warm place while you cut the roast chicken then serve.

If you're not supposed to be eating fried chicken, then is all the butter good for you either?  Sounds more like you need to roast a chicken with as little fat as possible.  Better yet, maybe you need to stick to a simple grilled chicken breast.  But I don't know much about diabetes frankly.

I'm actually quite a good cook, though now that I'm living alone I don't do as much as I used to.  When I lived in NYC I'd throw some very awesome dinner parties.  And I cooked a four-course meal when I was 14... my mother relished my homosexuality.

Sounds excellent . I have been using my barbecue rotisserie much of the time here lately but will definitely try out that recipe . I grill so much chicken here I'm starting to think all of my drop in company is here just for that , they walk in the door and right to the fridge .

I use my grill and rotisserie even if Im going to chop it up to make chicken salad .
