I hope no one minds. I am forwarding a newsletter that I get. It is about
all kinds of food, but usually has a low gi recipe like the one below. Check
out their website too. They have a low gi recipe section.

http://busycooks.about.com/library/weekly/aa012901.htm

Seafood has it all! It is low in fat, nutritious, versatile, and cooks

LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX DIET - TIDBIT OF THE WEEK

Sauteed Chicken Breasts with Lemon & Proscuitto Sauce
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A marvelous thing happens when fresh sage, lemon juice, butter and
proscuitto are combined together, as this recipe proves. Adapted
slightly from the Ann Arbor News.

    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 lb)
    salt and pepper
    1/4 cup 100% stone ground whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 tablespoons butter
    1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Sauce:
    2 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    15 whole fresh sage leaves
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    1 cup chicken stock
    3 tablespoons butter, softened
    1 slice proscuitto (about 1/4" thick; 1 1/2 oz total), finely diced
    salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

Rinse and pat dry the chicken breasts. Generously season both sides of
chicken with salt and pepper and dredge one at a time in the flour
placed in a shallow dish. Gently shake to remove excess flour.

Heat butter and oil in 12" heavy skillet over high heat, swirling to
melt butter. When foam subsides and butter begins to color, place
chicken in
skillet. Reduce heat to medium and saute without moving until nicely
browned, about 4 minutes. Turn over and cook on other side until meat
feels
firm when pressed, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to plate and cover
loosely
with foil and keep warm in a 200 oven while preparing the sauce.

Set skillet over medium heat (leave fat in skillet). Add garlic and
sage
leaves; saute until garlic is fragrant and sage crisps, about 1-2
minutes.
Add lemon juice and bring to a boil scraping up browned bits from bottom
of
skillet with wooden spoon. Add chicken stock, increase heat to medium
high
and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until reduced to about 1/4
cup,
about 8 minutes. Take skillet off the heat and swirl in the butter and
add
prosciutto. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spoon sauce over chicken and serve immediately.

Yield: 4 servings.
