Springtime Chicken Sauté: Seasonal Delight

During my pregnancy, I loved cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients. And this Springtime Chicken Sauté was one of my favorite dishes to make. It was a delightful blend of tender chicken, vibrant spring vegetables, and a light, flavorful sauce. Plus, it was gestational diabetes-friendly, which made it even better.

A delightful blend of tender chicken, vibrant spring vegetables, and a light, flavorful sauce, this dish is a perfect way to welcome the season while managing gestational diabetes.

  3. Return the sliced chicken to the pan with the vegetables. Add the lemon juice and stir to combine

  4. Cook for a few more minutes, until everything is heated through

  5. Serve your Spring Chicken Sauté with a side of whole grain bread or a light salad. Enjoy
