Cooking with diabetes: Chicken dish still tasty with changes

posted: 02/01/2017 1:52 a.m. Discuss

There was a time when these breads would have been made from scratch for every meal. But today, most of us are much more likely to turn to Sister Schubert, Pillsbury or Rhodes. It doesn't have to be that way.
