This is a meal I found in one of my grandma's diabetic cookbook. Diabetic exchanges: 3 lean protein (meat), 1 1/2 carbohydrate (1 bread /starch, 1/2 fruit) I find it is wonderful for the whole family

Tis dish was EASY to make. I did swith it up some due to content availability. I did not have a purple onion or an orange. I used 8 oz. of canned mushrooms and 1 sliced green pepper, 1 yellow onion, and made a creamy garlic herb sauce to coverlightly. All my guys liked it real well.
This was a simple yet elegant meal. The flavors were wonderful. The presentation was like I had been in the kitchen all day to prepare it. My husband loved it! Sherdabear
