Low-carb High-protein Diabetic-friendly BBQ Grilled Sugar-free Healthy Nutritious Low-glycemic Diabetes management Gluten-free Dairy-free Easy to make Tasty Grilling recipe


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6-8 ounces each)

  • 1/4 cup sugar-free BBQ sauce

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 bunch of fresh asparagus spears

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar-free BBQ sauce, olive oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. This flavorful marinade will make your chicken super tasty!

  3. Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel, then place them in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Pour the BBQ marinade over the chicken and make sure it's well-coated. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes (or even overnight in the refrigerator for maximum flavor).

  4. Once the chicken is done marinating, remove it from the marinade and let any excess drip off. Reserve the leftover marinade for basting later.

  5. Grill the chicken on the preheated grill for about 5-7 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and the chicken is fully cooked through. Baste the chicken with the reserved marinade while grilling to keep it moist and add more flavor.

  6. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.

  7. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  8. Wash the asparagus and trim the tough ends. You can do this by holding the asparagus spear towards the bottom and bending it gently until it snaps. Discard the tough end, and the rest of the asparagus will be tender.

  9. Place the asparagus spears on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the asparagus evenly.

  10. Roast the asparagus in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes or until they become tender-crisp. Make sure not to overcook them to retain their bright green color and nutrients.
