Farro and Vegetable Chicken Chili
Loaded with chicken and vegetables, this diabetic-friendly chili also calls for whole-grain farro, which adds fiber and helps to bulk up this recipe.
Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
If your meal plan allows, serve this dish with crisp whole grain sesame crackers.
